I heard someone say the water doesn't taste very well. I wondered what you all thought. Do you drink it or buy it.

Thank you

City water here in Clayton tastes pretty good. Drink several pints myself a day. Not as good as water back home but good.

We've just moved to Raton and the water is great. Moved from Central CA where we were on well water and always had to buy bottled water, so my tastebuds were pretty used to that. We have city water even though we are 4 miles from town and it really is good.

We have well water here in Nambe -- 20 miles north of Santa Fe -- and it is excellent. But it is five acre lots butting up against undeveloped land.

I suspect that it is impossible to generalize about northern New Mexico water -- northern NM is a very large area and it is not all on the same acquifer.

Talking ... water woes ...

Raton has a nationally acclaimed Purifying system for it's water, and Lake Maloya is spring fed from the undelying aquifer... a lot of the surrounding communities have well water, which is what my parents have, and it's better than bottled water (my opinion)... and you won't get that chlorine taste from the city water either... all around, the city water is better than any other place I've lived.
