Belmont Springs®
Water Quality Standards

Water Quality

Producing crisp, refreshing, great-tasting water is harder than it looks. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates bottled water products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act1, which means we're required to meet stringent standards for quality and safety. DS Services drinking water products; regional brands including Alhambra®, Belmont Springs®, Crystal Springs®, Deep Rock ®, Hinckley Springs®, Kentwood Springs®, Mount Olympus®, Sierra Springs® and Sparkletts®; and our national brands, Athena® water and Nursery® water, meet or exceed these standards, something we prove in certified laboratory tests.

Only Quality Bottled Water for You

Not just any water makes it into our bottles. We go through multiple, closely monitored processing steps to ensure every container meets or exceeds our high quality standards.

Federal, state and industry bottled water quality standards establish limits for microbiological, physical, chemical and radiological substances for both source water and bottled water products.2 Under federal Good Manufacturing Processes, only approved sources of water can supply a bottling plant.

Federal Regulations

The FDA regulates bottled water as a food product under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). All bottled water products must comply with the FDA's Quality Standards listed in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR).2 These include:

In addition, bottled water must comply with the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002. This act requires records maintenance and the registration of bottling and operations/sales facilities with the FDA.5
