My wife and I are considering a move to either Suffern, Greenwood Lake, or Warwick. How's the brewing water in those three towns? Obviously this isn't one of my biggest concerns when considering where we're gonna end up, but I was thinking about it and figured why not ask.

A lot of the homes here in Orange county have wells. Village of Florida's water (part of the Town of Warwick) has a chlorine taste once in a while. If your using town water and not a well, DPW for that town should be able to help. Also, there is a good homebrew shop in Warwick, Mistucky Creek. I use my chlorinated well water, letting it sit a day with a pinch of metabisulfite to remove any trace chlorine.

Thanks for the tips. Wells obviously can be different from house to house, which would complicate things a bit.
