What’s on Tap?

What’s on Tap?

       Imagine waterfalls and pristine lakes. Imagine wild rivers and cool mountain springs. What you see, however, is not always what you get, at least as far as bottled water is concerned. Given the option, would you choose a life of royalty with all the perks the position allows, but no indoor plumbing, or a regular middle-class life in the 21st century with a bathroom. I’d choose indoor plumbing every time.

  1. I always felt this way about our tap water while I lived in Massachusetts. I filled reusable water bottles from the tap. But in the past week since moving to CA I’ve found that I don’t like the way the water here tastes. It has a bitter, mineral-y, chemical taste. I’m wondering if it’s somehow drought related. And for the first time, I’m drinking Fiji water.

      I’m not a hydrologist, but I think you are on to something. One of the primary characteristics of water is its ability to dilute, but there comes a point where the assimilative capacity is reached. Lack of rain, lack of snow cover, maybe CA aquifers have reached it. A sad state for such fertile land.
