What is a reasonable fee that Nestle should pay to Michigan.
Is $200 a reasonable price for 210 million gallons?
Those gallons = 1.6 billion 16-ounce bottles of water.
If sold at 20 cents a bottle (say in a 24-pack), that’s $325 million.
And Nestle wants to pay the state $200?
A few at the wells?
A few tending to the pipelines?
Perhaps 100 at the plant in Stanwood?
