When traveling to Russia one cannot fail to ask the locals about the tap water they use. It seems that everyone in Khimki has used tap water at some point. This begs the question, is it safe? The answer to that question depends on whom you ask. If you were to ask the health department in Moscow, they would likely advise you to stay away from the "odors" or the "smelly" water.

The phrase odors or smelly comes from the type of filtration system used by most rural homes in Russia. In rural areas around Khimki a simple filtration system will suffice. Since these systems do not remove all of the small trace amounts of impurities that our bodies naturally require the vast majority of us ingest every day, these systems are considered safe for consumption. But if you were to find yourself standing in a rural Russian town where public tap water did not come from a filtration plant, you may be in for a taste treat. So how is tap water safety in Russia determined?
