At Poland Spring, we maintain high standards for all our products. It’s how we ensure that every bottle of Poland Spring® contains the same high-quality 100% natural spring water you love. See the rigorous testing and quality control process every drop of spring water goes through before it reaches you.
Once we’ve collected spring water, it undergoes stringent controls and a 10 step quality process. Our testing standards meet or exceed those set by the EPA and FDA — so you can always be confident in the quality of every bottle .
Daily testing of source water (mineral content, pH, bacteria) is designed to assure safety and consistency. In addition to daily testing we have a protocol of weekly, monthly and annual testing to demonstrate and document that the water we collect is safe, high-quality spring water.
The FDA is responsible for regulation of the bottled water industry. The FDA regulations for bottled water are as strict as the EPA’s regulations for tap water, if not more strict.
Detailed hydrogeological reports demonstrate that the sources for Poland Spring® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water and our collection methods meet (and many times exceed) established FDA criteria for spring water.
Our team of on-staff Certified Geologists and Natural Resource Managers helps us continuously monitor and manage each spring source with long-term sustainability in mind. Monitoring the springs and the natural habitats surrounding them is a top priority.
