Well, yeah. Like all big corporations.

But it's interesting in a business where in theory the public could completely cut them out, and eliminate most use of bottled water.



Inside Poland Spring’s Hidden Attack on Water Rules It Didn’t Like
BlueTriton finds itself pitted against local water boards, environmentalists and other groups across the country.
In Colorado, environmental groups have been battling a 10-year contract that BlueTriton renewed with a semi-arid county to pump water from the Upper Arkansas River Basin, a region affected by historic drought.
In California, BlueTriton has publicly criticized and vowed to fight a cease-and-desist order issued by the state’s water board to stop diverting millions of gallons of water from a spring in San Bernardino County.
In Michigan, lawmakers have proposed legislation that would close a loophole that enables BlueTriton and other commercial water users to pump water from the protected Great Lakes watershed. Known as the “bottled-water loophole,” it allows for water to be used this way if it’s in containers that are 5.7 gallons or less.
