That's not so far from the truth! We run a little bait store not too far from Lincoln, Nebraska. During our summer season, people bring their containers and line up to fill up out of our well. They don't want to drink the water available at the lakes and it's well water too. All the deep wells in this area are tapped into the same aquifer -- what comes out of the hydrant at the lakes is the exact same water as we have here. But you can't convince them of that. It's very tempting to develop a label and sell it through the store. Labels could easily be done on your own computer for the cost of the label paper. I'll have to check the regulations on that -- if I remember right, there is very little regulation concerning bottled water.
