I don’t trust the federal government anymore, and I am not sure I should trust my local government. What do you think? Would you drink the water? Think they want us to buy bottled water?

People in Austin might notice an unusual taste or color in their tap water. The Austin Water Utility says the water is completely safe.
A similar taste fluctuation happened two years ago. It’s due to an increase in the amount of blue-green algae in the city’s raw water supply.
The city’s trying to neutralize the compounds that cause the unusual taste and odor.
