Healthy Water for the People
From interviews by Kompas team in a number of cities such as in Medan and Manado, North Sulawesi, it was revealed that residents have high hopes for alternative sources of drinking water, besides bottled water.
Exposure to the Bisphenol-A chemical substance or BPA in gallon bottled-drinking water has sparked anxiety. In-depth studies and comprehensive solutions are needed.
The results of the BPA migration test for the 2021-2022 period by the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (POM) show that the BPA content in gallons of water in six regions exceeds the threshold of 0.6 parts per million (ppm). In Medan, North Sumatra, BPA content in gallon bottled water was found to reach 0.9 ppm.
