A group is trying to stop Nestle Waters North America Inc. from pumping more western Michigan groundwater for its Ice Mountain brand. Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation says Wednesday that it's preparing a petition for a contested case against Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality, which approved Nestle's application to remove 400 gallons of water per minute from an Osceola Township aquifer. The group says the DEQ will get the administrative challenge within 60 days.
