Is your tap water safe? Here's an article with NPR that highlights the drinking water crisis in the US (it's not just Flint, Michigan). View: https://www.npr.org/2018/10/03/649850498/you-just-don-t-touch-that-tap-water-unless-absolutely-necessary The place where we last lived, in Texas, the water smelled overwhelmingly of chemicals. Not just chlorine, but it regularly off gassed something that reminded me of Benzene. We drank and watered our veggie garden from a high quality filter that took out everything. We got regular reports from our water district and technically our water checked out as "safe" but the smell honestly scared me. Where we're staying now, the water tastes like dirt. Our current filters don't make a difference and we aren't staying here long enough to invest in a quality filtration system. We're giving the kids bottled water because we don't trust the water. What about you? Do you live someplace with clean, safe, drinking water, straight from the tap?
