Bottled Water Defined

Some of the more common U.S. types of bottled water are listed below:
Artesian Water – The purest of waters, this type of water originates from a
confined aquifer that has been tapped. Artesian water flows from the tap due to
gravity; the subterranean water level is at a height greater than that of the location
of the tap.
Ground Water – This type of water is from an underground source that is under a
pressure equal to or greater than atmospheric pressure. This is the water
responsible for lubricating underground faults.
Mineral Water – This type of water contains at least 250 parts per million total
dissolved solids (TDS). It comes from a source tapped at one or more bore holes
or spring, and originates from a geologically and physically protected
underground water source. No minerals may be added to this water.
Purified water – This type of water has been produced by distillation,
deionization, reverse osmosis, or other suitable processes. Purified water may also
be referred to as “demineralized water.”
Sparkling Water – This type of water contains the same amount of carbon
dioxide that it had at emergence from the source. The carbon dioxide may be
removed and replenished after treatment.
Spring Water – This type of water comes from an underground formation from
which water flows naturally to the Earth’s surface.
Well Water – This type of water is mechanically taken from a man-made
excavated well.
