Chobani is asking for more water.

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) has a hearing scheduled for the afternoon of May 23 in Harrisburg Pennsylvania to take public comments on Chobani's application to withdraw up to 1.3 million gallons of water per day from local aquifers.

The SRBC is expected to act on the application on June 20.

The Chobani yogurt factory in the town of Columbus continues to rapidly expand, and that’s what has prompted this request.
