Wonderful Water

Yesterday when I turned on the shower my nostrils were assailed by a blast of chlorine and my heart sank.  Although this is not usual it was expected as our water supply has been switched from the local bores to a "fully treated" supply, which contains chlorine as well as the contentious fluoride.  This is to allow maintenance to be carried out on the bores, which is expected to take five or six weeks.  When I got out of the shower I fancied that the chlorine may have left my skin a little dry and noticed that the drinking water does have a slight odour, but this is slight.  How immensely privileged we are to have this wonderful supply in an age of increasing water scarcity.
