Some of the water we drink is pretty filthy

Recommended Posts

While traveling across the USA I try to pick up a gallon of tap water wherever I go. Sometimes the schedule is too hectic to stop and can't do it. That was the case in Memphis , TN and Paris, TX as well as a few other places where stopping to find a tap didn't work out. Still, I have tons of water tests from both Coasts and many cities in between. I also tested a large collection bottled water, water filters and water filtering vending machines.

Here is a recent sample of tap water I picked up in Richmond, IN in December 2020.


Some of you are drinking 'toilet to tap' water. That is code for recycled human waste. You never know what is in the water, all of them are perfectly clear. Yet some of the water is filthy.

I tried to buy a gallon of tap water from San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, New Orleans and Boston, but had no luck. Even after writing 70+ people in these cities that should have had an interest in seeing what is in their water while getting paid for it. (newspaper reporters, bloggers, people I've done business with) No replies from any of them. That is how it is in 2021. If it was 1921 I'd have got 70 typewritten letters saying yes or no.
