BOTTLED WATER INDUSTRY RESPONDS TO LOCAL TAP WATER BOIL ADVISORY

 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Bottled Water Association tonight announced its plan to help ensure that local residents have access to safe drinking water as local health officials released news of a boil drinking water advisory in effect through Monday.
 IBWA members who distribute bottled water to the Washington metropolitan area and Northern Virginia have been alerted and are responding to the potential need for an increased bottled water supply. As critical need situations arise, IBWA will act as a liaison between its members and local hospitals, schools, homeless shelters and clinics who may have special needs for bottled water during this period. IBWA also has a hotline for city officials to call to ensure that there are adequate supplies of bottled water.
 IBWA members supplied bottled water to residents in Milwaukee, following a similar boil advisory, and donated more than 2 million gallons of water and packaging to Midwest flood victims this summer.
 IBWA, whose members produce and distribute 85 percent of the bottled water sold in the U.S., was founded in 1958 and is headquartered in Alexandria.
