I hear complaints about public drinking water. Some people think it tastes “dirty,” or they object to the level of chlorine, to the color or the smell.
My palate is not sensitive, but I’m good with city water. I’m actually an advocate of public water — as opposed to over-priced bottled waters in the plastic containers that litter the world.
You may dislike your local water system, but I predict a growing number of Jackson County people will clamor this year to be connected to public water. And they may not be able to get it.
