Tap vs. Bottled Water

Our most recent ChathamRecycles column in the Cape Cod Chronicle championed tap water as a better choice than bottled water.
While we still feel strongly that tap water is the better option for many reasons, please note 2 addendums:
1) Chatham's municipal water does not contain fluoride.
2) At the same time our column ran, an Associated Press article revealed that pharmaceuticals had been found in some municipal drinking water. Procter and Gamble, in response to our query, said their Pur filters may filter out some of these, but cannot guarantee; and Chatham's Water and Sewer Dept. Director William Redfield recommended in today's Chronicle that residents throw leftover medicines in the trash, not in the sewer system. Until we can test and treat for these contaminants, these are good ideas!
