Elisir : Water Surcharge -- seriously

"""Please note, though, that there will be a 29-cent surcharge on water since Elisir is only serving the filtered kind.""

Seriously? The tasting menus are $75 and $95 and they are adding a surcharge of 29 cents for filtered water? Who thought of this brilliant idea?

Is this for real, or a publicity stunt?

Is this a trend for DC? Do other places here add a surcharge for "filtered" water? If so, what does that say to you about the restaurant owner's concept of customer relations? Surely this will generate a bit of a bad taste, no?
