Find Out What's in Your Bottled Water

CR assembled a list of water quality reports from more than 120 brands

Getting information about the quality of the bottled water you drink is hard. We know because we tried.

There is no single source that maintains a list of these quality reports, which companies must produce for federal inspector or state regulators. The website for the International Bottled Water Association, the industry’s main lobby group, does link to some of them. But many of those links are broken, CR found.

So we got the reports directly from as many companies as we could, and we’re sharing them with consumers here. As we get more, we will add them to this list.

In some cases, brands get their water from other companies. For example, Kirkland Signature water, which is sold at Costco, is sourced from Niagara.

As a result, the reports from some of those brands correspond to the companies they’re sourced from. To find the right report, check your bottled water label for the water source and type of water and match it to what’s listed below. Then click on the link to download the PDF.
