So, my part of the city is under one now for the second time in two months, the fourth time this year and seventh or eighth time in the last three years. I was wondering how this compares to other cities.

Once in my lifetime so far. Happened a couple of years ago, and was a highly unusual event that was like big news for a couple of days. It did affect a very wide area, but also seemed to be more a precaution than necessary danger (something broke with the main reservoir, so they had to switch to a backup for a bit).

If there's one thing Britain can be proud of, it's the quality of it's tap water. Never heard of it.

And now I wish I didn't google it.

its kinda scary and all the grocery stores run out of water and emergency crews come in for the people who can't afford to buy it or to help with the store deficiencies

we had that happen last year was afraid to even give the dog water from the faucet

and i dont live in a "disgusting" place, it can happen even to the "best" and "cleanest" of cities.

Never in the states. Although we did get that a few times in Taiwan after outbreaks of E. coli were linked to the water system.

Dozens of times a year sadly.
Posted 9/23/15
Only once, as far as I know.

We have nasty water during the spring and post summer season, it's still drinkable in terms of filtering but it tastes rancid, so everything either gets filtered through my personal filter to remove the nasty stuff, or I drink bottled. Generally the latter, though. Water bottles keep going on cheap sale every other week it seems.

See, on the other side of the country, in California, our water problems are not so much quality as quantity.
Posted 9/23/15
Never got an advisory like that.

Well, I'm sure you've seen some of the political ads in this state. It seems that any vote to raise any tax makes you the villain... and people wonder why our infrastructure is shit.

Anyway, I recall one a few months ago but other than that we don't have any issues unless we take a direct hit from a hurricane. Things got nasty after Gustav hit. The water at NSU in Thibodaux smelled absolutely disgusting.
