Our office is a tenant in a very, very old building. None of the tenants in the building that I've talked to drink the water from the taps; they all buy bottled water (as do my coworkers) because "who knows what comes out of those pipes." I just don't feel right about this, even if the water is 'not safe,' which we don't know, as it hasn't been tested. Yesterday I determined how to get a test for lead and copper done, by the City's water testing lab. I wrote the Property Director asking her to pay for this testing. My questions are: 1) should the Property Director readily agree to pay for this testing? 2) Does the landlord have a responsibility to a) provide potable water at locations reasonably assumed to be potable, i.e., kitchen sinks? and, b) determine if the water is indeed potable by city standards? (i.e., perform testing to make that determination). Thank you!
