There was a day when you would be thought insane if you thought that someone would actually buy a bottle of water. One day the world just went crazy. I decided it was time to expose the industry so I saved up plastic bottles and cleaned them with bleach water and removed their labels. I refilled the bottles with tap water and I put a new label on the bottles that said:
Water for People with
More Money Than Brains

It gives me great joy to see bottled water companies finally admitting that they've been selling people tap water the whole time.

There you go with those conspiracy theories again. I s'pose next you'll be telling us that (gasp) China is foisting poison food on us in a preemptive strike, or that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (horrors), or that (horror of horrors) maybe our government AND those soulless corporations ARE actually out to get us. (And by the way, I still think there was a second shooter on the grassy knoll). The dumbing down of America and the return of the snake-oil industry is nowhere so apparent as in the purchases of cases of bottled water.

No, Americans buy Chinese poison and faulty lead coated junk because they are looking for a deal and they like Wal*Mart.

There are WMDs in Iraq, we brought them there.

As for government and the corporations, our prisons are full our freedons are limited and the oil companies are making billions in be the judge.

So would you like to buy a case of Tap from me? Only $25 and if chilled, $50.

Lots of folks used to say the best water around came out of a pipe sticking out of the ground up near the summit on highway 26. I don't live in the area anymore but it was not unusual to see several vehicles stopped and filling jugs of that cool clear sweet refreshing coast range spring water. Not sure if its still there but it was on the north side of the road about a mile or so east of the rest area.

We put a Brita filter on the kitchen tap for "fussy" water drinkers. When guests request ice water (Brita) I serve it with ice cubes made from tap water. So far, no deaths.
I drink tap water.

The water from here they peddle to the fools is really spring water, but still just water. We've loads of those springs around locals use. The state even checks them monthly and posts a warning if found unsafe. I prefer other forms of refreshing liquids though:)

Yes, Anon, there is still a fountain on both sides of Hwy 26. There used to be another pipe coming out of the dirt on Lewis and Clark Road below the old dump in Seaside, but that was taken out when they improved the road.

Beth, And it's probably as good as what they sell, though I do admit that I like store bought ice because it's clear, but we use the ice maker in our freezer. It's water comes through an in-line filter, which reminds me it's time to change.

Mike, and when mixed with water, they purify it.
