GOOD Magazine reminds us that tap water may look clear and safe, but there could be a lot of nasty gunk hiding in there—and oftentimes it's legal. They've listed the top five cleanest and dirtiest U.S. water utilities. Among the cleanest: Arlington Water (Fort Worth, Texas) and Providence Water (Providence, Rhode Island) and, drum roll, the dirtiest: Emerald Coast Water Utility (Pensacola, Florida), City of Riverside Public Utilities (Riverside, California), and Las Vegas Valley Water District (Las Vegas).
