Drinking water on Moorea

Is it safe to drink the water on Moorea? I've read several places that you should drink bottled water on all Tahitian islands except Tahiti in Papeete. Is this because the water isn't safe to drink or does it have a bad flavor, or ??? Thanks!

There doesn't appear to be any clear answer on this. We heard the water wasn't safe to drink either, so we stayed away from it, as well as any non-cooked food. When you go to the restaurants and even some of the fast food places and you ask for water, you automatically get bottled water anyway. Not free of course. You have to specify that you want tap water. We just played it safe and stuck with bottled water. Why take the chance of ruining your vacation?
