Cool Clear Water

I got a bottle of water at a meeting at work. I was looking at the lable. It is Nestle brand ["Pure Life" Purified Water (enhanced with minerals for taste)]. No, it's not chocolate water. It says it comes from a "Deep protected well, Ontario, CA". http://www.ci.ontario.ca.us/flippingbook/2009WQR/index.html says the city of  Ontario's drinking water mostly comes from wells.

In other words, they are taking tap water there where Cambrie lives, running it through a filter, adding "Sodium Bicarbonate" (baking soda), bottling it and hoping people will buy it. Seems to have worked.

Oh, I forgot to put this in: It has one other added ingredient for "flavor" : Calcium Chloride...that's the stuff they use to melt ice on roads.

that is so funny! Ontario is an ugly little urban city. You'd think they'd at least choose a pretty clean and remote city.
Bottled water is a waste of $!
