ABSTRACT
This study was undertaken to determine the quality of bottled water produced by the 40 Water Refilling Stations (WRS) of Zamboanga City.
Water samples were collected from every WRS of Zamboanga City. There were three different sources of samples: (1) the product water (water produced after the water purification process); (2) the wash water (water used to wash the empty bottles), and; (3) the bottled water (water packaged in 5-gallon bottles). The physical and chemical analyses of the product water samples from all the WRS’s were within the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water, while the Bacteriological analysis of the product water and wash water samples were free from Total...
