I've lived in downtown New Orleans (CBD) for 2 years and I've always drank bottled water. I have friends who drink straight tap and others who use a Brita filter first and neither seem to have had any negative effects in all the years they've drank tap. Personally I don't trust that the local agencies have my best interests at heart so I drink bottled.

Some time in the early 80s there was a report released which stated that by the time the water got to NO it had passed through the systems of 38 separate people! Oh, our mighty Mississippi!

Imagine what that number is now that with the population growth!

I grew up 6 blocks from the river and one of my earliest memories is of my (usually) gentlemanly Father yelling at our new cook for using water from the faucet to cook something...Kentwood delivered their huge bottles even way back then.

Many times, over the years, there were broadcast "alerts" for us to not even bathe in the water due to chemical spills near the intake locations.

You go ahead and drink it if you can handle the yuk factor.

Well the media has been saying for almost a year now that bottled water is simply bottled tap water. Unless you buy only the top brands of water and by top I mean the TOP, it might not make a difference.

So, it's not all the "Hurricanes" and bad seafood......... it's the water !

I guess I'll stick with booze then
