Aquafina Bottled Water Essentially Tap Water In A Bottle

Changes are on tap for bottles of Aquafina.

The owner of the brand says the label on the water bottles will soon be changed to spell out that the drink comes from the same source as tap water.

A group called Corporate Accountability International has been pressuring bottled water sellers to curb what it calls misleading marketing practices.

Aquafina is the largest bottled water brand. Its bottles are now labeled "P.W.S.," but the new labels will spell out "public water source."

The corporate accountability group is also pressing for similar concessions from Coca-Cola, which owns the Dasani water brand.

Dasani's Web site said that Dasani comes from local water supplies and is then filtered.
