Cities With Best Tasting Water
Five cities were selected on May 20th as finalists in The U.S. Conference of Mayors 2011 Best Tasting City Water in America contest. The five cities are:
- Albany, NY
- Denton, TX
- Racine, WI
- Rochester, NY
- Pembroke Pines, FL
The finalist cities will advance onto The U.S. Conference of Mayors Annual Meeting in Baltimore on June 17th, where Mayors attending the annual meeting will serve as judges for the final round of competition, and select the winning city.
The Conference conducts this periodic water taste test to bring attention to the increasing amount of money that local governments spend for water and sewer services and infrastructure. While city water comes from natural sources, local governments, with little assistance from the federal government, provide the pipes, pumps, treatment works and services.
