Press Release  June 3, 2015          
The local community group W.A.T.E.R. (We Advocate Thorough Environmental Review) has hired land use and water attorney Donald B. Mooney, to represent it in demanding that Crystal Geyser and the County government follow County law before allowing Crystal Geyser to start their plastic bottle manufacturing/tea brewing/juice bottling operation just outside the northern border of Mt. Shasta City.  On behalf of W.A.T.E.R., Mr. Mooney sent a letter today to the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors and Crystal Geyser pointing out that the land in question has long been designated by the County's General Plan as a "Woodland Productivity" zone which specifically forbids heavy industrial uses (such as plastic manufacturing, and non-spring water beverage brewing and mixing, all of which are planned by Crystal Geyser).  Read Full Document
