5. Yes they are....

We use a Britta filter and get essentially the same as bottled water..Sadly,most everyone we know,buys bottled water and toss the empties out with the trash......

That may result in decreased flow down the Niagara River and hence to the Niagara Power stations on both sides of the river


Wow....I hadn't considered that.....However I did know the Mississippi River is low enough that barge traffic,(commerce) is severley impacted.....There was a story on this mornings local newscast about a barge company owner/ship Captain has docked his whole fleet,til levels rise.......They went into some mind boggling detail on how many train cars and/or semi trailers it would take to move the tonnage one barge handles.....
