Quality

Mount Desert Spring Water Quality Report

Our bottled water meets all federal and state health standards. The FDA regulates bottled water as a food product; the EPA regulates tap water as provided by water Utilities. Standards of quality enacted by the FDA for bottled water must be as protective of the public health as the EPA’s Maximum Contaminant Levels for tap water. Ensuring the safety of the water is our primary objective in providing our product to the consumer.

Our company regularly tests for organic and inorganic chemicals that are not regulated by the FDA. As an extra safeguard, we also test for unregulated contaminants. No contaminants have been detected above the FDA’s limits in our testing, as demonstrated by the following information :
