Tap Water Brindisi in Italy is one of the most polluted areas in Europe. The Italian press regularly publishes pictures of decrepit pipes and leaking tanks, all taken before dawn on a dreary and overcast day. These pictures are an eye sore when you consider that the water in Italy is safe for drinking. In fact it is probably better than in any other country in the world. Here are a few reasons why.

Tap Water Quality: Brindisi is fortunate to have good water quality because it receives very little direct rainfall. This reduces contamination by a third compared to other Italian towns with the same soil type. Since the towns receive less rainfall than the countryside, they also use rainwater in their toilets and agricultural plants. This means there are fewer chemicals and contaminants in the water that make it taste so bad. Unfortunately this does not mean the quality of the water is high. There are still a lot of contaminants present in the tap water here.
