Should I buy bottled water?
You don't need to buy bottled water for health reasons; Deerfield's drinking water meets all of the Federal and State drinking water standards. Bottled water may have a slightly different taste than tap water, but it costs up to 1,000 times more than municipal drinking water. In emergencies, bottled water can be a vital source of drinking water if water service is lost. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires bottled water quality standards to be equal to those of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for tap water, but the quality of the finished product is not government-monitored.
