AUS: Coca Cola Amatil to challenge water useage limits - report
Coca-Cola Amatil is looking to gain approval to permanently increase the amount of water it uses
Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) has approached the local council for its Peats Ridge bottling plant in a bid to increase the amount of groundwater the facility is permitted to extract, according to reports.
The soft drinks bottler is looking to gain approval from Gosford Council in New South Wales to permanently increase the amount of water the site uses to 66m litres a year, ABC News said today (5 May). It is unknown how much water CCA currently extracts from the acquifier on the Central Coast.
However, CCA may have to take the matter to court after the council deferred its decision and is now calling on the Primary Industries Minister to limit the amount of groundwater it can access.
Yesterday, CCA gave details of its profits guidance for the first half. The firm said that it expects to report an increase in profits of around 5%, after extreme weather and a rise in commodity costs took their toll on growth at the start of the year.
