water: part 2

I went to the city's website again today and it was up! So I hunted down the utilities department and found the latest water quality reports. I verified that the city's water is indeed treated with ozone rather than chlorine, which is why I don't smell chlorine in the shower (I used to smell it, years ago, before I got a water filter of my own, which in fact was one big reason I got the filter).

The city tests water at several tap sources throughout the city as well as at the treatment location. It always tests well above EPA levels. It appears that most of the likely contaminants are metals. I will want to print out the test results before looking at whole-house filters to be sure I get one that does what it should.

Funny thing. Paul just came in and the first thing he said was, "Did you know the city's website was down? It got hacked." Apparently he heard it on the radio.
