Township rejects Nestle Ice Mountain permit
OSCEOLA CO, Mi (WPBN/WGTU) -- Nestle Ice Mountain's expansion plans in Mecosta County have hit a snag.
Tuesday night, the Osceola Township Planning commission rejected the company's request to build a pumping station there.
The station is the most efficient way for Nestle to increase the amount of water it pumps from a well in Osceola County. Right now they take 250 gallons per minute, and they want to take 400 gallons per minute. That request is pending with state regulators.
Commissioners heard from both Nestle and the public Tuesday night.
After a closed session, they denied the permit.
Nestle can still put together a new proposal, addressing any concerns, and come back to the township with another request.
