NMU speaker presentation canceled

MARQUETTE -- Northern Michigan University's Students for Sustainable Living announce that, because of unavoidable circumstances in Mecosta, Terry Swier, president of Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation (MCWC), will not be able to make it to Marquette to give her talk this evening, Wednesday, March 23, at NMU.

"Although we were all really looking forward to hearing from Terry this week, it was only a part of our week long 'Down to Earth Week' series; and we hope that you will be able to attend some of our other events," said Doug Turnbull of Students for Sustainable Living. "We encourage you to visit to learn more about Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation."

Apologizing for any inconvenience, Turnbull said he hoped the talk could be rescheduled for April.

In July, 2009, MCWC stopped Nestlé Waters North America, Inc.'s attempt to pump more water from a stressed stream and lake for its Ice Mountain bottled water in Mecosta, Michigan.
