  • Helpful info: DON’T ever drink Houston “water”. If people know what was in it, they wouldn’t water the plants/lawn nor bathe their animals in it. Full of agricultural “run-off” ,etc as the water comes from Lake Houston. Those subdivisions drain their “treated” effluent (aka sewage ) into Lake Houston. The City of Houston “treats” the water with fluoride & chlorine (two KNOWN carcinogens) and viola it’s somehow “drinkable”. No thank you. I’ll continue drinking PURER bottled REAL water. The taste of Houston water alone is gag worthy…

  • With all Houston’s craft beer operations, there is not reason to be drinking water.
