Bottled Water Program


To protect and promote the health and safety of Rhode Islanders by ensuring that water bottlers adhere to quality, standards of identity, and manufacturing practice standards set by the Food and Drug Administration.

What we do

  • Conduct annual chemical analysis to determine what, if any, contaminants are in the water.
  • Ensure that product labeling meets federal standards.
  • Provide manufacturing plant and grounds inspections of buildings, fixtures, and plumbing.
  • License all bottlers of water that is sold in Rhode Island.
