    They lifted the ban yesterday- so 9 days with no water. Apparently, the city did some tests and the results came up negative 3 days in a row so they decided the water was fine. I went to the store and bought two 26-packs of Ice Mountain, just to be safe in case it happens again.

    We've always been having trouble with our water in Wichita. I don't think I've remembered a boil order lately but it's been a pretty big issue here. Runoff and feces from livestock farms as well has pesticides have washed into the Arkansas River and now it's pretty gross. The reservoir we get our water from has similiar problems and the water's lousy. Last year the water started tasting really bad so now we got a water dispenser and some Culligan water, it's really good stuff.

    Just what I was thinking. Anyone know how goose tastes?

    Yeah, we had two, count 'em TWO water main breaks in 2002 (one in Feb, the other in September) prompting boil advisories. Each time, we got out of school for two days. We've also had several little ones here since during the school day prompting an announcement saying "Do NOT drink the water!"...and that's it.

    Fortunately, no goose poop incidents here...otherwise, I'd live on bottled water!

    So, everyone rushes out to buy bottled water, and I get to the store...its all gone. So now im living on Diet Rite They say its safe to shower/bathe in if we do not drink it. I have to pour the little bottled water I have into my coffeemaker and toothbrush...

    Anything like this happening to anyone else??

    Go and drink water in Pakistan, you have to boil that for 4 hours until you can drink it, and by that time most of it has evaporated. So you only have a little left. But if you stay there for a long time your immune system gets use to the water and you can drink it. I just didn't drink water when i went to visit there, just got Pepsi. Or i drank Tea. Also don't eat the food there too, unless if its home cooked or from a good restaurant.

    Well, in The Hague, the Netherlands, tap water isn't drinkable unless you were born here. For us foreigners, it works as a laxative - way too mineralized.

    Back home in Argentina, tap water is 100% drinkable and tastes good.
    Wow...strange how water is working these days...

    Got another call from the city...water SHOULD be drinkable by Thursday...
    Hopefully.
