I grew up in Queens so I've experienced the crappy NYC water. I also went to grad school in DC, and worked in the Senate for a little so go to experience the crappy DC water too. Never been to SF or Atlanta though. Now I'm in upstate NY, Binghamton to be exact. Our water here comes from either the local reservoir, or from the Catskills. We've also got a popular spring just outside of town that people are always going to to get fresh spring water. At times you'll literally see people lined up with gallon jugs for the water.
