Poll on pH

I am doing a study on pH levels in different areas. All I ask is you help out by posting your pH and the (city and state, providence etc ) where you live.
What I am looking for is the pH from your tap not your tank.


Thanks

It varies a little here in Miami, from 7.8-8.2.
It goes through limestone aquifers. Its also very hard water.

Yes 9. sometimes as low as 8.6, and sometimes as high as 9.5, but it always is stable at 8-8.2 after 24 hours. The water here is a bit hard but not considered liquid rock. Both kh and gh stay about 70ppm each. Very soft in comparison to my last residence where the tap water had a kh of 500ppm, and a gh of 1300ppm. 8O (no fish i was able to keep without diluteing lots with ro water).
