World's Best Tap Water

Contest for the city with the best public tap water draws international attention to drinking water quality.

"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. But it has since grown into an international event that helped inspire the United Nations to declare 2003 the International Year of Freshwater, focusing attention on the need for safe drinking water.
