    It is imperative that the name and brand of the water is made public. if otherwise the CA and SLSI should be held responsible via DM Android App

    The authorities should inform the public the brand of water to protect others from consuming contaminated water

    why don't you'll say the name of the water is "Mount Spring" people need to know the truth when they are given poisoned water so that they would know not to buy the water from that again right?
    This is a serious issue that needs to be looked at so many water bottles these days

    Tell me one thing that is not contaminated in good old Sri Lanka. Fruits, water, fish, dried fish, curd, hoppers, chilly powder, coconut oil, tea, coffee etc. Even the House in Diyawanna is contaminated. God save us. via DM iPad app

    Even American Premium does the same. Bringing water in the bowser and filling. But uses the political power.
