In 2006 Nestle installed several test wells in the state-owned Vernon Walker Management Area and in 2008 the firm made public a plan for bulk water withdrawal from the large aquifer beneath the region. Lacking adequate public notice, controversy ensued, resulting in the towns of Newfield and Shapleigh enacting local constitutional or "rights based ordinances" in order to prohibit bulk water extraction. Due to community controversy, Nestle has also agreed to remove the test wells from the wildlife management area. This film serves a witness to that removal. It documents the first and last well removal and was videotaped by POWWR members and friends during July 22-24, 2009
