Talon is small town located in Pecos County, Texas. When town officials realized that drinking-water consumption by residents was well below the national average, they decided take action and three months ago began adding sugar to their water supply
to make drinking it more desirable. According to Hester Griggs, the Commissioner of Utilities for Talon, they are adding roughly "4 tablespoons of sugar for every 8 oz. cup of water." Earlier today, Pat Kelly spoke with Mr. Griggs to find out how residents are responding to this initiative.
We want to know what you think: Is adding sugar to a municipal
water supply, a good idea and should more towns do this? Let us know in
the comments below or by tweeting us @CBCThisIsThat.
