This guy tried this in Alaska and got shut down. He built the bottling sheds before obtaining building permits. Water is our right, not his personal profit margin.
Respect Public Trust. Shut down the water company and let the water flow
Why are you reopening this discussion. Pau. Not good journalism.
Give it a break, especially LaBedz. The water bottled by Kauai Springs is a small fraction of the flow that continues through streams, unused, to the sea. The original complaint was from a COMPETITOR who sells you purified water from off-island. We are fortunate to have the fresh water of Kauai Springs available to us.
Aloha, Dear Derek Kawakami, and all powers that be : We the healthy people of the community of Kauai want to continue to receive Kauai’s own live, precious water from Kauai Springs water Co. We don’t want fluoridated piped in water with who knows what toxins are in it. this is live vibrant water and we’re so glad to get it from Kauai Springs.
Please do not stop them from delivering it to us. the planning department should let us have it. this is political bulling at its best. Give it up and play nice they’re just delivering us pure water. I support them in continuing to do so.
Thank you, Toni Liljengren
Kauai Spring Water is delicious and benefits not only the health of people drinking it, but also is environmentally friendly. It is a shame government is prohibiting this family run business from supplying us with great drinking water. Now plastic from bottles imported from overseas will continue to contaminate drinking water and fill our landfills. What a shame. I hope that Kauai Springs Water company is given the proper permits to continue being a wonderful asset to the Kauai community. Thank you, Liz Belfor
