Voters say "no" to Creston bottling plant

Posted: Updated:
CRESTON -

Flathead County voters overwhelmingly say "no" to a proposed water bottling plant in the Creston area. 

A ballot issue put before voters Tuesday sought to expand an area known as Egan Slough Zoning District. A vote for the measure essentially was a vote against the plant. Expanding the district means the bottling plant will not be able to operate on the land it is slated for. 

The initiative passed with more than 70 percent of voters voting for the measure and just 30 percent voting against it. We expect these numbers to shift slightly throughout the night. Please find the latest numbers here

The owner of the proposed plant has gotten all the necessary permits to advance his business, but some in the area are worried the bottling plant would damage nearby farmland and endanger their water source.
