I’m partial to Overland Park water, because that’s what I’m used to. Every once in a while there’s a sulfuric smell to the water here.””

I think it tastes pretty good. It’s not that bad.””

I live over the bridge in North Lawrence, and it’s pretty gross. It’s a little better in town, but it’s still not that great.””

Personally, I’m used to it because I grew up drinking the same kind of water. It’s not my first choice, but I don’t mind it.””

Lawrence water is nasty. It's foul-smelling and has pink slime mold in it. I didn't realize how much I miss having good tap water until I went to Germany.

Got me my own well. Yee Haaaww. I's a only missin' a few teeth but papa don't mind. This here water's better'n that fancy smancy 'ol city water cuz it's plug full of i-run. Makes a youngin' growed up strong. Put's a nice brown shade on all da washin' too, so it helps hide stains. Yes siree, Bob! No, I's a don't care for that thar city water.

We distill our water and you ought to see the crud that comes out of the water. Reverse Osmosis is also a good idea.

Most other filtering systems do not remove that much but the clorine smell will go away.

They're a great band and they're from Lawrence. I have their first CD and I heard they're working on their second one!
