Where does your water come from? How do we treat water? How is water treated? I’ll never forget, when I was about twenty, how I watched as my father made his way down the bank of the Mississippi to water’s edge, on a cold December day, to wash his face in the River. It seemed like a bad idea, but I watched as he kind of baptized himself, recognizing the River as a relative and old friend.
