You may not have known it, but Kristiansund, Norway is one of the most polluted places on earth. They rely on rainwater to keep their town''s clean, but when that rain runs over their tap water they are in big trouble. Over one million people a year die because of unsafe water. The water is contaminated with heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and bacteria. It''s no wonder that the Norwegian government is seriously considering making the capital city of Oslo a city that is strictly sealed off from the rest of the world.

Water is contaminated with all of these metals by runoff from farms and other large-scale commercial production areas. These factories don''t care about how clean their product is, or what safety standards their equipment is using. Only a few companies exist that are responsible for ensuring that the water coming through their tap lines is clean and pure. One of them, the Fylltaf Skogfjord, is responsible for supplying water to the whole of Norway.
