Thousands protest Nestlé's request to bottle a MILLION gallons of water every day from Florida springs as water flow reaches historic low

Nestlé has come under fire for its plans to bottle more than a million gallons of water a day from natural springs in Florida.

Thousands of protesters are calling for the local water management district to deny the firm's request of an additional 800,000 gallons -bringing its daily consumption up to 1.152 million gallons a day.

Because the springs are running at levels 30 percent to 40 percent lower than they were decades ago, experts and activist warn that 10 million people and the surrounding natural habitat will be in danger if approved.
