"This weekend, water drawn from public taps in cities around the world will be put to the test by judges at the 11th Annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting in West Virginia. The prize: bragging rights to the world's best tap water. The competition was started as a way to draw tourists to the small resort town known for its freshwater spring where George Washington bathed.
