Can You Drink Tap Water in Kerman?
Yes, tap water is drinkable.
Tap Safe includes data from many publicly available sources, including the WHO (World Health Organization), CDC (Center for Disease Control), and user submitted databases, but unfortunately there's not enough data about Kerman.

As the price of crude oil rises and the effects of global warming have become clear in the US, more people are becoming aware of the health risks associated with drinking contaminated tap water. The threat is real and the need to act quickly becomes more evident each day. In Iran, where the government has allowed the production of petroleum since 1979, the issue is more complicated.
Because the vast majority of the population relies on groundwater for their drinking water and because the tap water at underground is not treated, the potential health risks from drinking contaminated water are obvious. Many people become aware of the problem only after a disaster, such as the eruption of the dam at Lake Mead in Nevada in 1980, when thousands of people lost their lives. Since then, most people have become so accustomed to thinking of water as a source of safety that they fail to connect the two examples of how they can be so vulnerable.
