Why "Kasher" The Water?

Tiny crustaceans called "copepods" have been found in New York City tap water. Their appearance in tap water as small white specks may represent a significant kashrus issue.

These copepods come in several species, are found in water all over the world and are usually perfectly harmless. But they are a distant cousin of the dreaded shrimp and lobster, shellfish whose consumption violates the biblical prohibition against eating water-borne creatures that lack fins and scales. Some are so small as to be invisible, while others can grow to a millimeter and a half in length, large enough to be seen in water as small white specks.

We JewishRecipes.org contacted the Vaad Hakashrus of Denver (Scroll K) Rabbi Moshe Heisle - It is an issue in New York but here in Denver, he said Denver drinking was check and is kosher!

Note: some hold "it is an issue" and some it is "not an issue" - consult your local Rabbi
