  • Description

    Concern over the pollution of water supplies in the South Korean capital of Seoul has led to a small boom in sales of bottled mineral water.

    With a campaign slogan of 'Let's drink fresh water' the Korean Mineral Water Association has attracted 1,200 members since it was formed four years ago.

    Its supplies come from the Cho Jeong spring in Chong Won district about 75 miles (120 km) south of Seoul.

    The spring became well known in Korea about sixty years ago and analysts say its water is purer than some of the leading mineral springs in the United States and Europe.

    The water is bottled and sold in Seoul and other South korean cities.

    Older people take it as a treatment for over-weight, tuberculosis and nervous diseases and a number of pollution conscious younger people have begun to drink the water regularly.
