Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsCastle Rock Water Company's contributes to the community of Dunsmuir:
Our Water is owned by the community of Dunsmuir, we are setting an example how water should be contributing to the community to lower the taxes, not only do we pay a fair price for the water to help the community but we are also renting a building which is owned by the community which was closed and inactive and a crime magnet. We made it into a modern bottling plant at our expense and created employment for the local community. The rent of the building goes to pay for the city park and the water fee goes to pay for infrastructure. We are setting a standard how natural resources should be used and contributing fairly to our community. We are the first company to do this.
All natural resources if sold fairly to cooperations in a country, could pay for our government household and result in a tax free country.
Use of Fair Trade PremiumThe City of Dunsmuir uses the plant's rent and the "premium" on the water to pay for upkeep of city buildings and grounds (including parks), and for replacement of old city water lines.
