(410 ILCS 655/10)
    Sec. 10. Licenses required.
    (a) No person may operate a water-bottling plant or a private water source in this State, except pursuant to a license issued by the Department. Bottled water must be processed in conformance with 21 CFR Part 129 and must conform to 21 CFR Part 165. If a person has a valid water-bottling plant license issued by the Department, additional license fees for a private water source operator based and operating at the same address shall not be required.
    (b) Any bottled water produced by a private water source or water-bottling plant that is not licensed in compliance with this Act is misbranded and may be embargoed.
    (c) It is unlawful for a water bottler, water distributor, water-vending machine owner, retail water facility, or private water source operator to sell or otherwise distribute water that is unsafe for use or that is adulterated or misbranded as provided in the Illinois Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
    (d) The licensing of activities relating to bottled water as provided in this Section is an exclusive power and function of the State. A home rule unit may not license any activities relating to bottled water that are licensed under this Section. This subsection is a denial and limitation of home rule powers and functions under subsection (h) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution.
