Here in Baton Rouge the water tests as well or better than most bottled water.

There is a movie filming here and the city is also providing a supply of eco-friendly water bottles to the production in order to minimize their environmental impact.

Not only is it very healthy, but tap water builds character too

How much water are we talking? I always thought that the amount of water needed to actually be life threatening were amounts that only got drunk in things like frat hazing rituals.

We are talking a lot of water Russell. When it happened to me I think I had drank close to 8 liters that day.

Wow- that is a lot of weight to lose just from drinking water and exercising (was this a change from her old routine)?

I like to force myself to drink one tall glass of water before I leave the house everyday - I feel a lot better throughout the day when I do this.
