I believe city water gets treated to be potable in ways and with chemicals that orchids don't appreciate. I have read that leaf tips on house plants turn brown due to the use of water from the municipal supply. Even well water has desolved solids in it.
I lost the link to this place I was reading up on last night... but, it says there that softened water is not good either. I don't have softened water so I'm going to try the faucet filter and see how that goes.
