amalgam discharges to public sanitary sewer
Amalgam - Discharges to Public Sanitary Sewer
  • Discharges into public sanitary sewers are regulated by the Bureau of Pretreatment and Residuals. All dental facilities subject to this regulation were required to implement Best Management Practices, or BMPs, by October 1, 2008, and must install an amalgam separator that meets the ISO 11143 criteria by October 1, 2009. Facilities that opened after October 1, 2007 shall immediately install an amalgam separator. Each dental facility subject to this regulation shall register and certify compliance annually with the NJDEP.
bottled water outsold milk in 2006
Bottled water outsold milk in 2006
  • NEW YORK — For the first time in US history, bottled water outsold milk according to Beverage Digest, which recently published US beverage sales results for 2006, a May 4 story in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
  • Also according to the industry newsletter, bottled water came close to outselling beer as well.
  • Average per capita consumption of bottled water went from 11 gallons per year in 1996 to 21 gallons in 2006; while milk consumption dropped about 3 gallons on average per capita, the story said.
  • Soft drink consumption dropped by about 1.1 gallons on average per capita as well, but still outsold bottled water.
bottled water facts
Bottled Water Facts
  • Fact #1.  Bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes. It is estimated that over 80% of all single-use water bottles used in the U.S. simply become "litter." Source: ValleyWater.org
  • Fact #2.  Recycling is only feasible in limited circumstances because only PET bottles can be recycled. All other bottles are discarded. Only 1 out of 5 bottles are sent to the recycle bin. Source: SunTimes
  • Fact #3.  U.S. landfills are overflowing with 2 million tons of discarded water bottles alone. Source: idswater.org
  • Fact #4.  It takes over 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet the demand of U.S. water bottle manufacturing. This amount of oil far exceeds the amount needed to power 100,000 for a year, which does not include fossil fuel and emissions costs of green house gases needed to transport the final product to market. Source: SunTimes
  • Fact #5.  It is estimated that actually 3 liters of water is used to package 1 liter of bottled water. Source: ValleyWater.org

bottle water contaminants
Bottle Water Contaminants
  • The mix of contaminants and contamination levels were the same as in the local municipal water, indicating that little had been done to further purify the water after it was taken from the tap.
  • By law, bottled water that comes from a municipal water supply has to disclose this on its label, unless the bottler takes steps to further purify the water.
  • "Clearly, you would not expect to see the level of chemical that the samples had if the extra purification had been done," Naidenko says.
  • Specifically, the investigators found that:
  • Five of the tested waters contained fluoride, six contained small amounts of the fertilizer ingredient nitrate, and two contained the drug acetaminophen, sold as Tylenol.
  • Samples of the Sam\'s Choice water purchased at a San Francisco area Wal-Mart had levels of the disinfection byproducts trihalomethanes that exceeded the California legal limit for these chemicals.
  • Samples of the Sam\'s Choice brand also had higher-than-allowed levels of the chemical bromodichloromethane, which is a known carcinogen.
  • Samples of Giant\'s Acadia brand water also had levels of the chemicals that exceeded California safety standards, although the brand was sold only in mid-Atlantic states, where it met standards.
  • The report noted that levels of the chemicals in both waters also exceeded the bottled water industry\'s voluntary safety standards.
