Las Vegas Water Tapped For NV Assemblyman's Bottling Business - 2015-03-25
Many people don't think twice about what's in that bottle of water they just bought at the grocery store. The taste, compared to tap water, might be worth it.
But in a recent article in Desert Companion, one of those bottles was looked at a little more closely. On the back of the label of Real Water - a bottle sold in many grocery stores around town - it says in fine black print: "Source of water: Las Vegas Valley Water District."
Now, bottling tap water is nothing new. In fact, according to the Food & Water Watch, about 50 percent of all bottled tap water in the U.S. comes from municipal tap water sources. What is new, however, is Real Water's claim that "Beyond alkalinity ... Alkalized Water Infused With Negative Ions."
