Unlike previous comment, I've only been living here a few years, but enough to know that:
-most pollution here doesn't come from cars (much from the refloating brake,rubber and fume dust on the road, but thats not what smells), the real problem are people burning random trash in their single family houses, that's what will give you and your kids cancer
-water in general is, well, water, sometimes smells like chlorine and other times like something burnt (its sulfur I've heard)
the city really likes to brag about quality of their tap water , but that smell is enough for me not to drink it. Besides I don't trust the pipes in my building. And good luck finding drinking water fountains outside
-streets are cleean and thats just a fact. everyone travelling abroad I meet is always surprised at how tidy we've got.

Well, I have no idea where idiots like robert are coming from. I was born in Warsaw and living there for first 25 years of my life, returned recently after living in apparently paradise for most of the people. The city is polluted some days, but much less than many other European cities, water quality is very good, not worse not better than in W.European countries. Dirty? I am walking around the city a lot and can say that it's much cleaner than in France, Italy, Germany and many other places. Not to mention wonderful parks if you want to spend time outside.

You should have been born in Warsaw and spend 28 years living there (and not go just for holiday) to see and know it HAS huge pollution and is generally dirty. And this hasn't improved much til now.
True the air is polluted like in most over 2 million people cities.
But there is more: You shouldn't drink tap water or you risk diarrhoea as communal filtration of tap water is very poor.
City is dirty and untidy in most places.
Even though there is more recycling containers and rubbish bins than say 20 years ago, it fully depends on people whether they use them or put their rubbish/recyclables elsewhere.
Being tidy and organized is a virtue that Poles probably will never learn.
