Nestle Waters North America has entered into an agreement with the city of Evart, Mich., to buy some of its water on an ongoing basis.
The company operates a water-bottling plant near Stanwood in Mecosta County, about 40 miles south of Evart.
The wells that Nestle Waters uses now have pumping restrictions because of a lawsuit filed by an environmental group, so the company has been looking for a second source of water for the plant.
The Evart City Council voted 5-to-0 yesterday to sell water to the company for 88 cents per one-thousand gallons.
Beginning this summer, water will be pumped from a spring-fed well owned by the city and piped to a nearby transfer station.
At the station, it will be pumped into tanker trucks and transported to the bottling plant.
