The problem isn't the catch basin (the pond) it is the whole catchment area that the water is coming from, paved, salted, & fertilized.[Cambridge's is] freshwater populated by native fauna and minerals, because it's been fenced-off from being messed with by human hands since the post-Civil War era. That's what tap water is supposed to taste like from an unspoiled Eastern MA waterway. We just don't have any other non- human-shaped or non- invasive ecology reservoirs to compare it to.
