In 2011, the National Park Service allows over 400 parks, monuments and historical landmarks to stop selling disposable bottles on the condition that there are resources (such as water fountains) that allow visitors to refill their own bottles. Recently however, big water companies saw this, and reacted.
"The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) is lobbying the Senate to pass an amendment to the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (S. 1645) that would forbid the National Park Service from spending money to implement bottled-water-free policies. This is unacceptable. National Parks should be able to decide for themselves whether they want to sell bottled water"
