Should we drink Filtered water as opposed to Municipal Tap Water ??

The Environmental Agencies regulates municipal tap water and fix the legal limits of certain contaminants and maximum water utilities generally stay within these limits, but “some of the legal limits may be too lenient”.

The pollutants like lead from old water pipes, byproducts of chemicals like chlorine that are used to treat drinking water and pesticide runoff in rural areas can be further reduced by using the right water filter only.
Common pollutants in drinking water are Radon, nitrates and Arsenic, and various drugs including hormones and antibiotics can also found in traceable amount. Certain filters may help remove these impurities also.
But quality of water and contaminants of water vary among different water utilities, so you want to purchase an effective water filter to capture the right contaminants.
You should chose a filter that is certified by NSF International, an independent public health organization that assesses products. (There is an organization working for the same purpose available in every country of the world.)
If you are Older, Suffer from chloric illness, having young children, Pregnant or compromised immune system then filtering Tap water may be even more important.
One option is available “The bottled filtered water”, But they generated waste so most environmental groups discourage use of bottled water; in addition, bottled water is not regulated as stringently as municipal tap water, they are not 100% safe also because due to overheated or damaged plastic in to the water contaminants can leach there.
