NYC Drinking Water under the Microscope (7 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       6 Sep 2010       14720       9

It is said that New York tap water is delicious. But why is that? Maybe because it has plenty of tinny tiny crustaceans called copepods.

These copepods are absolutely harmless and are invisible to a naked eye. Apparently, they are added to tap water to eat mosquito larvae to keep water sources clear.

Looking forward to see microscope pics of bottled water.
Why ? Cause tap water has to pass a number of quality tests, required by law even while bottled water has none of that... get my drift ?
