Drinking water in Santa Teresa/Mal Pais

Hello we are visiting Santa Teresa next week and I was wondering if the tap water there is OK to drink. When we stayed near Arenal and in Tamarindo last year we drank the water trouble free, but that was after taking the advice of a trusted person I work with.

I'm guessing Santa Teresa is OK as I've heard that most of Costa Rica's drinking water is just fine. However, I know there are a few areas with problems. Thanks in advance!

I've been there 4 times and never a problem drinking the water, but hopefully someone who lives there will confirm.
