  1. A resource like drinking water must be protected from privatization. Corporations put profit ahead of stewardship. Fresh water packaged in plastic bottles is not a sustainable way to solve the growing problem of water shortages. The carrying capacity of the environment must be weighed against the continued population growth and the expropriation of resources currently held in common by communities.

  2. I ditto the above comments and also want to know how a corporation that is not local is even on the agenda? And 10 years of tax credits we foot the bill on does not even suffice the paltry 40-120 jobs..the jobs they would give to students would be menial and dangerous with the toxic chemicals it takes to make the bottles..this is NOT what we envison for our youth- we need environmentally safe, community oriented businesses- not another corporate takeover of a community and nature.
    Please införm me of any more petitions, rally’s and opportunity to express my taxpayers right to refuse this outrage.
    Thank You

  3. everyone in my community is outraged at this bottling plant proposal. We do not want them here! We will keep fighting this abuse of our resources, it is extremely detrimental to our community.

  4. If you’re going to be sustainable, you need to be culturally sustainable. You need to be economically sustainable and you need to be environmentally sustainable.”

    NIAGARA is batting 000000000 on all counts! STOP LOOK & LISTEN!! NIAGARA is doing the WRONG thing in the WRONG place at the WRONG time in the WRONG way…..Greed steers your boat….It should sink soon!!

  5. Please listen to your students. This will not have real benefits for the vast majority of them, and is a project that is fully in opposition to any goals the college has for helping create student citizens for a sustainable future.

  6. Please dont partner up with corporate predators like Niagara Bottling Co, it is not good for the area, the environment or the people.
    It is not a good message to pass on to your students.

  7. Frankly, I am shocked that SUNY Ulster would even consider partnering with Niagra water bottling company. A water bottling plant is not a healthy environment for student interns and works against our economic and environmentally conscious future. Please do the right thing.
