ELDRED TOWNSHIP -- Nestle has changed its plans to draw water from a site in Monroe County, according to company officials.

The food and water company intended to extract water from a spring in Kunkletown. Nestle wanted to draw tens of thousands of gallons of water a day.

Company officials formally withdrew the permit request for a zoning change at a meeting Wednesday.

Residents filed a civil suit against Nestle in January.

Nestle had submitted applications to extract 200,000 gallons of water a day for its Deer Park water.
