Bottled water is drinking water (e.g., well water, distilled water, mineral water, or spring water) packaged in plastic or glass water bottles. Bottled water may be carbonated or not. Sizes range from small single serving bottles to large carboys for water coolers. All of the tap and bottled water in Qatar is safe to drink, but some imported water has higher concentrations of tested parameters such as arsenic (average concentration in imported water = 0.62 parts-per-billion (ppb)); and chromium (1.04 ppb) than the locally produced tap and bottled water.Consumer demand for bottled water has increased in recent years in Qatar and as a result, the footprints of many companies are increasing in this sector. Bottled drinking water is commonly treated and disinfected for taste. In Qatar, a number of companies offer bottled drinking water and their services tend to adapt to the needs of each client that include delivery either monthly or weekly, sometimes even daily.
