I live right near Pensacola, I don't think we have same water. The 2nd worst water quality is Riverside, CA, where I was born and raised :P Riverside (the city, not county) is split up in terms of water. The people downtown get different water than the ones on the other side near Moreno Valley. Honestly, I don't think in terms of taste that So Cal water is that bad. As a kid, we would see particles floating in it (looked like toilet paper, heck, it could have been). I have always used a Brita filter everywhere I've been. The worst water I've ever tasted? Corpus Christi, TX. Even Brita couldn't get rid of that.

I grew up in Hawaii, so I was always drinking tap water. Wish I could do the same in SoCal.

Did not know Texas had great water... I did know about poor Florida though. Because I live there, but not that exact area at all. I'm from NJ where the tap water was drinkable when I was a child and Florida is just nasty to smell.
