(EDIT) THIS IS A JOKE
Well guys, I don't know why none of us thought of this. If you're having trouble drinking enough water, just add sugar! I'm having a hard time believing this is real.
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.
Listen to the audio interview with the utilities commissioner for more. He talks about how the sugar water comes out of the showers too, so you might be a little sticky after your shower.
Reminds me of the movie Idiocracy, where they can't figure out why the crops won't grow, when all along they've been using an electrolyte drink to water them.
