Should I buy bottled water?

Some people believe that bottled water is safer and more pure than tap water. Water purity is determined by the amount of elements found in the water and by the level of treatment performed. Both bottled and tap water are considered safe when drinking water standards are met. When the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets a new standard for tap water, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is required to establish the same new standard for bottled water.
