It looks like the South realizes the North's poo flows downstream.

I wonder why the north seems to drink more tap water?

Depends on your area of the country

Tap or bottled. Neither is 100% safe, neither is horrifically bad ( depending on your region)

Filtered. But why is it listed with bottled? Bottled water is more contaminated than tap because of all the plastic chemicals. Often only bottled tap anyway.

Mississippi said tap because they don't have a choice. otherwise, the question should have been tap or puddles in the back yard, in which case.....

I will say that the tap water in NYC is awesome! LA...not so great (very safe to drink, but not tasty).

the map clearly illustrates where the water tastes great!! and where it doesn't. it's all about source, distance traveled, and temperature.

Bottled water creates heaps of plastic trash.

Filtered or bottled are not the same this question is invalid.

@DrBrisha: I am in NWA. What about you?

It's pretty terrible after it rains. Even the dishes from the dishwasher smells like fish.

Tap water smells like formaldehyde if it sits too long. Filtered water all the way.

Tap water all the way!

All other waters are not subject to testing.

I drink tap water, although I prefer not to. There are so many nasty things in the water around here, which I only know about because the husband of a woman I worked with is an attorney whose office does work for the Indianapolis water co. We have a water filter under the sink anyway.

Would GLADLY drink tap and stop paying for bottled water if ours didn't taste so utterly revolting. We're visiting in NYC right now and the tap water is great!

I drink tap, but VA just got like a worst in the nation water quality assessment...

05/02/12 7:19 am

responses show a general lack of education about the bottled vs tap debate.

05/02/12 7:18 am

bottled water DOES NOT EQUAL tap water. do your research, there are many types of bottled water.

I'll I want to check that bc I only drink tap but I don't trust that the link isn't a virus... Can anyone verify that?

St.Louis honestly has tap that tastes like bottled water! Can't get enough of it!

If you need a reason not to drink tap water, ask yourself if it's fluoridated and then check out this google search.

Tap water here has become over chlorinated. It tastes like pool water.

05/01/12 8:16 pm

filtered tap water here in ny. bottled water is an ecological nightmare and it is generally filtered tap water anyway.

Tap water is disgusting where I live. The water is extremely hard.

Filtered tap water. Thank you Britta.

05/01/12 7:48 pm

no option for filtered tap water

05/01/12 7:43 pm

The gov't does not put fluoride in the tap water because they want its citizens to be cavity-free. They put it in to keep the population dumb and docile. Read about how fluoride calcifies your pineal gland.

i just let the tap run a little the down the hatch it goes
