Geneva's Tap Water

Having come from a place where the tap water is so-so and everyone drinks bottled water like crazy, it is refreshing for switzerland's tap water to be some of the best in the world. I can finally fill up my Nalgene bottles and not worry about the wierd taste. Better yet, the tap water is really cold and no ice cubes are needed. 

Looking at some glocal forums, I found this thread about Geneva's tap water and a question on whether it was hard or soft. I found out it depends on where you live in the canton as to where your water comes from. Check out this site (in French) for a map. Scroll over your location and check out the mineral contents! 

The area I live in gets the water from the lake itself! Hmmmmm - it does make me want to yell at people I see pollute or swim around in it!

I know! The water is delicious over here in Ost Schweiz as well. What I don't understand is why people still buy bottled water. I get that people like their frizzy bottled water, but still water??
