Water quality and regulation

In some places around the world people lack access to safe drinking water. Even in parts of North America there are concerns about the quality of some local water supplies and potential contaminants. We believe people should have access to safe drinking water and we support policies that strengthen public water systems.

The regulatory standards for bottled water are at least the same as for tap water. In two critical cases for water quality – lead and bacteria in drinking water – bottled water has significantly stricter regulatory limits. Click here to learn more about these regulations.
