Invisible shrimp could very well be living in every drop of water you drink--but that's OK, they're nothing to worry about.
New York City's drinking water is a point of pride for natives. Never mind that in practice, depending on your building, it can come out of the tap
with a tinny aftertaste or, at least at our last apartment, with a light sprinkling of unidentified white particles that settled and dissolved in
about a minute. The problem: tiny harmless creatures called copepods.
Here's the funny part:
"But besides a serious “ick” factor, the copepods are technically crustaceans, which means they aren’t kosher for the city’s large Orthodox,
observant Jewish population".
I guess that's why it tastes so good and i rarely get hungry anymore.
