Damn, we have incredible water. I've lived in NYC, Brooklyn, Miami, Portland, Phoenix and Tucson. I've experienced everything from heavily-chlorinated sludge (Phoenix) to weirdly discolored (Portland). San Francisco's water is crisp, refreshing, and pleasantly odor-free. There's the slightest perk of dissolved salts that hits the back of the tongue for a nice finish. It is, in short, the best damn water I've ever had from a public service.The secret of course is the Hetch Hetchy glacier reserve that supplies our water-- I don't want to think about the thirsty bears and owls and trees that we're depriving-- water that is tested 100,000 times per year (300 times a day?!?!?) by the SFPUC. I'm sure water this good has a closet full of dark secrets, and a movie as good as 'Chinatown' lurking in its history, but for now, I'm pleased to shower in the damn stuff.As a town, we've got it better than most, including the price.Highly recommended, and highly available. Have a refreshing glass today and enjoy a small pleasure that helps make the quality of living so good here.(1)---(1) To experience the polar opposite, as we all should with our small pleasures, visit Phoenix in the summertime. The water smells like a pool chemical testing kit and can literally only be drank ice cold, to numb the taste. It leaves an unpleasant white film on every surface it dries on-- a residue of god-knows-what surfactants and pH stabilizers-- further evidence that you shouldn't build a metropolis in the middle of the G-D Desert.
