In Konstanz, Germany, the treatment of public supplies has been considered a low priority. The public supplies are treated in the old-fashioned way of using chlorine. This is because there is no method to purify tap water in such a way that it can be used for drinking purposes. Even though the treatment centers were originally put in place to control bacteria, they have found themselves increasingly tied to the drinking industry. Water is sold for consumption and not for drinking.
Water is piped into the towns and municipalities, where the citizens then buy bottled water in return. Once again, tap water quality in Germany has been lacking in many areas.
