This study is focused on the elemental analysis of fourteen-branded domestic bottled water available in the Al- Qassim area of the Saudi Arabia. The concentration of
nineteen elements (Be, B, Al, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Mo, Ag, Cd, Sb, Ba, Sn, and Pb) on the bottled water samples were analyzed using Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) followed by the standard procedure. The results obtained indicated that all of the elements except Boron in the bottled water were found within the permissible limits set by standards used.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has called a high-level technical meeting on February 6 to discuss safety standards of bottled water sold in the city.

Many licensed units are allegedly extracting groundwater

Disinfection by-products (DBPs) are formed during treatment of water for drinking purposes. Among these oxyhalide DBPs, viz. bromate, chlorate and chlorite are potentially harmful to humans. In the present study packaged drinking water samples of various commercial brands, available in Mumbai, were analysed for bromide, bromate, chlorite and chlorate ions using ion chromatography.

Groundwater pollution due to anthropogenic activities may impact overall groundwater quality. Organic and inorganic pollutants have been routinely detected at unsafe levels in groundwater rendering this important drinking water resource practically unusable. Vulnerability of groundwater pollution and subsequent impact has been documented in various studies across the globe. Field studies as well as mathematical models have demonstrated increasing levels of pollutants in both shallow and deep aquifer systems.

Over 10,000 illegal packaged water bottling units are operating in the NCR, often using labels of the 64 licensed manufacturers, putting the health of millions of people at risk, say industry offic
