Energy implications of bottled water

As bottled water use continues to expand around the world, there is growing interest in the environmental, economical, and social implications of that use, including concerns about waste generation, proper use of groundwater, hydrologic effects on local surface and groundwater, economic costs, and more. This paper estimates the energy footprint required for various phases of bottled water production, transportation, and use.
