As a homebrewer who's located in Mountain View,CA, I'd like to share my
opinion. Let me state first, I've never asked the water company for a report
on the water. I *DO* know that I don't like the taste of the water that comes
out of the tap, so we get bottled water for drinking. My partner and I use the
same bottled water for our beer. The rationale -- if it doesn't taste good,
don't use it. Works for us. We get our bottled water at a local store(Pure
Water is the store name) for only $.25/gallon. There's probably isn't any
safety hazard in using the tap water, we just choose not to! Anyway there's my
two cents worth:-)!

Damn it Jim, I'm a homebrewer, not a scientist,
