Have you ever been advised to boil your tap water due to possible contamination?
I lived in Naples IT, we couldn't drink the water, at all.
That's what wine is for...
Not yet. You know something you're not telling?
No, just that we have a 48 hour boil order here because the system was unpressurized for most of the day yesterday while the town replaced some equipment. Apparently that is normal in that situation, but it's a first for me.
Yes. In both California & Oregon.
When I traveled to Central and South America and Southeast Asia yes.
When I was a kid. We lived up on some dirt roads in a "private community" that got all its water from a well. There was a bad storm and for a few weeks we couldn't use the water - it was brown and disgusting.
A few times as a kid not for the last 6 years or so though
When I was in Afghanistan
Its a pretty normal thing around here. Its usually not too bad, but sometimes its needed.
A few times in the past half year or so.
Do I smell the big outdoors? World travel? Adventures in remote places? Where did you go?
I've been to key west and st. Augustine this past year but the water advisories came when I was home.
I didn't know Disney World had so many problems with its water! lol
Not in any place that I've lived, as far as I can remember. But I was visiting friends near Washington DC when there was a boil-water advisory. I remember restaurants selling bottled water for pretty outrageous amounts.
By a German travel company when flying to Tunisia in 1977. Been a while ;) Actually, they didn't advise us to boil the tap water but buy bottled water and/or use purification tablets.
Nope.. I have my own well. So I don't deal with any of that city water!!!!
