You are on the right track. All you need is the name of the water system
from a site owner and you can go to
http://www.epa.gov/safewater/dwinfo/index.html to determine if the water is
approved for drinking. I have checked out many of the sites we use in

Actually this can solve many problems. If you have your cup with your 
and I pour water into it from a gallon jug of water that we purchased 
then we are not preparing anything. Many problems are solved this way. 
It may be that if we were to fill those same cups, directly from a 
drinking water safe hose or faucet of municipality provided drinking 
water(tap water), it may be the same thing.

 That would add a level of complexity for the individual. But it does 
avoid many of the situations that need for us to train for sanitation 
and that may also mean that we wouldn't be providing anything the local 
authorities would find inspectable or regulatable.

In some places our 501(c)3 status means we don't have to purchase a  
Food Handling Permit but we do still have to follow local food laws and 
regulations for US, State, County and City if we provide food in any way.

If we don't prepare anything then there is nothing to regulate. 
Reselling or providing packaged foods is not considered food handling, 
foods  like small bags of chip or candy bars.  If we gave away 
commercially bottled water it would be the same.

This observation does not take into account the cost differences. That 
is my disclaimer.
