It was summer when I first arrived here in the USA. My husband already told me how bad the roads in Pittsburgh. At that time people were constructing the road right in front of our apartment. Since it was summer the weather was warm and humid. But then during rainy days I was shocked to see how dirty the water looks like. Although, my husband told me that the water was safe because this is America everything had undergone standard inspection. And people are paying taxes so they deserved the best and quality. I used simple technique in purifying the water like boiling the water to have a clean and safe water. Anyhow, I was hesitant to consume the water even if my husband assured me that it’s safe to drink, bathe or used it. To be on the safe side I boiled the water before I drink it. Then, I waited to clear up the brown water before i used it for shower or bath. Generally speaking tap water here in the US is safe to drink.
