I’ve heard that for Marco Rubio, it’s fatal.

I was watching a man take a sample of water from a hydrant way up in the mountains at a retreat. He asked me if I would help him turn something. Anyway he took the sample.
I asked him what was the safe limit on certain organisms. He told me then I asked him what our water rated. He said it contained zero pollutants of any kind.
I had always thought their water was great and apparently it was.
There was a creek flowing out of the mountains onto the retreat’s property. I asked him what it contained and he said it had a fair amount of bacteria. He said he would not ordinarily drink from it but if he had been hunting all day and was really thirsty, he would go ahead and drink it and not really worry.

By law, municipalities have to test the water and report to consumers once a year Some years ago when we built our new house, our town, as a routine part of the permit-approval process, asked if we would help with its water-testing each year - they provided an empty bottle once a year, and we filled the bottle from the kitchen tap first thing in the morning, after not using the tap for at least eight hours - eventually we would get a written report back on the quality of the water, alwasy well within drinkable standards - this went along fine for several years, until it became impossible for us to participate anymore (I think my daughter graduated college and got a job which meant she was up and using the sink before the required time had elapsed) - that year when the sample bottle arrived, I placed it back on the porch empty, with a note saying we wouldn't be participating again - sure enough, about a month later we got a fine written report on our water (non) sample, saying all was well - I called the water department about this strange event, and of course got a runaround about how the lab must have mixed up the samples - so much for municiple water tests......
pur 3-stage filters on the tap work well. they do remove stuff well as they get to a point of needing replacement, and that’s with a pretty good water to start with. pur always outperforms brita. reverse osmosis generally beats pur.

(I can neither confirm or deny that; even if I could, I couldn't - it's classified.)
iâll take mine straight out of the tap, all those things are good for you, keeps your immune system on ready alert! Last time I was sick was 67 years ago when I had the measles.

Not everything dissolved in water is deleterious: horse farms are concentrated around Lexington, Kentucky because the calcium in the water helps build horse bones.
Maybe there are some slack towns that test their water 4 times a year, but for cities of any size, I'm certain they do chemical and microbial testing all year. It would be not wonderful if 500,000 people got sick from tap water.
Private labs doing water testing are another story. I worked at one (briefly) that cut corners, used improper equipment, improper procedures, and generated useless results.
I drink tap water every day.
