Bacteria In Bottled Water ~ Why Not?
Chapter 3: BOTTLED WATER
CONTAMINATION: AN OVERVIEW OF NRDC'S AND OTHERS' SURVEYS:
Bottled Water Storage and Growth of MicroorganismsBottled water often is stored at relatively warm (room) temperatures for extended periods of time, generally with no residual disinfectant contained in it. As noted in the Technical Report (print report only) and shown in Figure 8, several studies have documented that there can be substantial growth of certain bacteria in bottled mineral water during storage, with substantial increases in some cases in the levels of types such as heterotrophic-plate-count-bacteria and Pseudomonas.  Studies also have shown that even when there are relatively low levels of bacteria in water when it is bottled, after one week of storage, total bacteria counts can jump by 1,000-fold or more in mineral water. 
High level of bacteria found in bottled water in Canada

Canadian researchers tested nearly a dozen brands of bottled water and discovered that 70 per cent had high levels of heterotrophic bacteria.

Another strike against bottled water.
New findings show that several types of bottled water sold in Canada contain high levels of bacteria, raising questions about the cleanliness and quality of bottling plants.
The health concerns add to the backlash against plastic-bottled water that has led several cities and school boards to impose bans.

Tests on leading brands of U.S. bottled water turned up a variety of contaminants, including cancer-linked chemicals three times higher than California's health standard, according to a study released Wednesday by an environmental advocacy group.
