The local news media say it is time for our water supply to be "fooled with" again. Well, they didn't actually say fooled with. They called it treating the water. As if it were sick.
The water company is going to add pungent, free chlorine instead of tame, combined chlorine for the next two weeks. It is so fearsome, they felt they had to warn us.
And recently we have been put under water use restrictions. Less really is more.
