Default PSA Bottle water shortage!

This will be an issue quickly. We go through a pallet a week and none is to be found. Stores that do have it are limiting quantities. We buy wholesale and again everyone is out!!

This is for job site crews. Looks like we will go back to coolers and paper cups. Problem is its a pain with the OSHA regs and steps you have to take. Then you still need to find potable water on site.

Any one here sell water?

I believe it is because of water wells drying up due to the extended drought. Many people are start to load up on bottled water

OK, I have toilet paper saved up from last time. Do I need to go hoard bottled water now?

Hope you're able to find some soon, that seems like an odd thing to be out of.

George Carlin had a great bit about water and how the heck did we all need to start carrying it around now.

Once news talks about it...hoarding will be start.

I was noticing that the last few weeks in stores. Last year, this time of year, there was a little shortage because they didn't have plastic for bottles. That might be a reason now.

Trying to find plastic ware at the store now is hard. Some days no forks and other days now spoons. Here for the last month there has been no plastic knives. I think its just supply chain issues across the board.

Due to possible vindictive employee we must tape the lid close, date the tape, log the fill, and sign off.

Looking into watering stations that are OSHA approved.

Maybe be less crappy plastic in the waterways & everywhere from sorry people. just drink tap & put in your own container or water cooler. I was at one of the places I wade fish last week & it just made me sick to see all the plastic water & soda pop bottles on the ground. It wouldn't bother me one bit if the made it like bottles in the old days. Return for deposit & charge about a dollar a bottle deposit. MAYBE some would clean up.

Even if they bring their own we as owners or job site supers have to provide it also. OSHA is obviously on the employees side. The whole water cooler thing is a PIA.

Get with a company like this. They are turn key replenishing ice, coolers, and water on your jobsite daily. We use them here at the refinery. No telling how many thousands of bottles of water are consumed here per day with 3-4 thousand people here on an average day.

There are others around besides Baytown Ice. This is the best way to go. Plus, no filthy hands in the cooler if you use a dip net to get the bottles out.

Dog refuses to drink bottled water. She will drink out of the creek, tap or toilet but never out of a plastic water bottle. That was a good enough reason for me to stop.
