HOW DO KEEP MY BOTTLED WATER PRODUCTS SAFE?
Water entering a bottled water facility contains bacteria, no matter the source. Spring water contains bacteria. While these organisms are generally not harmful to humans, they can cause off flavor or even haze in the final product if allowed to enter the final packages and grow.
Bottlers use several technologies to either remove bacteria from the bottling process or prevent bacteria from growing. Filtration is an important part of the effort to remove bacteria and produce a safe, clean product for consumers.
