This is a message to the water bottling companies to become a resource creator, instead of being a problem. This can be easily accomplished by desalinating seawater and creating a safe, sustainable bottled resource.
The trace elements from sea water can be reclaimed from the sea water, then added back to create a bottled water safer than the water resource stolen from our aquifer.
The energy for this process could be generated on site, or purchased from green energy suppliers for an even better product that can be marketed as being really safe and sustainable.
There is a desalination plant under-utilised in Sydney. I am sure Sydney Water would be happy to share this resource until other facilities can be built.
