Default Houston Tap Water Drinkable???

Is the tap water drinkable in Houston or do most people purchase their drinking water from grocery stores?

It's drinkable. Houston 'supposedly' has good water, though its better in some MUDs than in others.

Still, I prefer Ozarka.

Roberta... one requirement to live in Houston and that is to Learn Tx History or go to Prison, and have a sense of humour. Our water is fantastico! There was a time we bottled it and sold it.... I dont know if they still do. If you are worried about impurities, you get more impurities by breathing the mist from your shower than you do drinking our public water.. I have never been ill from our water.... once in a while it is red from red clay when they work on the pipes, but my mother always said.. "A little dirt is good for the soul". Believe it or not the Catholic Church uses it for holy water and the Baptist use it for baptism..so it must be Godly and good.

Our water is better than Phoenix, worse than New York. I don't drink from the tap.
