Remember the good old days of drinking out of the hose on a hot summer day? Or taking for granted a quick trip to the sink for a clean glass of water? What you're looking at, folks, is a water filter pulled from a reverse osmosis water filtration system owned by Otsego man, Joseph Mcillwain. Posted to his Facebook page, Mcillwain stated, quote:
