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.
