Consumers often believe that bottled water is safer or healthier than tap water but the government now says their faith is misplaced. And now move's afoot to force bottled water providers to make sure their products come with the same level of disclosure information as that offered by municipal water providers. (Regular tap water must be tested in certified labs.)

With Congress now looking into the matter, what's the most reasonable way for Washington to proceed? More government-sponsored regulation or should Uncle Sam leave it up to the individual companies - and their customers - to decide what's right for them? It's your turn to comment. Let's hear what you have to say.
