H-2-Oh So Good

Forget sports drinks or anything bottled from the French Alps. If you need a thirst-quencher, drive to La Junta and turn on the tap.

People who live in the town say their tap water tastes as good as anything that comes in a bottle.

That's because a new filtration plant uses osmosis on Arkansas River water to reduce the amount of dissolved solids inside the water.

And apparently, the federal government thinks it's good too. The water already meets federal quality standards going into effect next year.
