Copepods in NYC water-must use a 5 micron filter

Shrimp cocktail: In the spirit of New York City’s “WaterWeek,” here’s a little (microscopic, actually) fun fact. Did you know NYC’s tap water isn’t technically vegan or kosher? Nope. As we speak, copepods—tiny crustaceans that love to eat mosquito larvae—are swimming their way through the city’s pipes and down the pipes of New Yorkers. (And we're all pretty fine with it, because streaming clean water into your home is awesome!) Inhabitat
