Abstract

The geochemistry of various brands of bottled mineral waters available in Udupi during the season 2014-15 were evaluated for getting more coherent spatial information about the natural variation of element concentration in bottled waters found at the Udupi market. The objective of this study is to investigate the possible relationship between the ground water and the processed water, based on their dissolved mineral content. Results of chemical analysis shows that none out of twelve analyzed bottled waters from Udupi exceeds the permissible limits prescribed as per IS: 10500 norms, thus validating their suitability for human consumption.
