Of course, for the environmental nightmare caused by plastic water bottles, I encourage you to use them as little as possible. Once you get used to carrying reusable bottles, it becomes second nature and buying bottles of water is usually unnecessary.
Here are the top 10 cities listed in Park's article for having the best tap water:
- New York City, New York
- Stevens Point, Wisconsin (Not sure about this one, as it's treated with chlorine, fluoride, and phosphate -- doesn't sound like something I'd want to drink, but I could be wrong.)
- Chicago, Illinois
- Denver, Colorado
- Manchester, New Hampshire
- Fort Collins, Colorado
- Greenville, South Carolina
- Silverdale, Washington (Apparently the deep Green Mountain aquifer is so pure, treatment is unnecessary. How awesome is that?)
- Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
- Louisville, Kentucky
