GREELEY, Colo. – Raise a glass to Greeley: The city has the best-tasting water in the United States.
The Weld County city won the top honor at the 13th annual American Water Works Association “Best of the Best” tap water taste test in Philadelphia. Greeley beat out 34 other regional winners from across North America to take the top prize.
Greeley also won the “People’s Choice” award, beating out nearly 1,000 other entries.
Not only is this the first national win for a city in the Rocky Mountains region, but it’s the first time a city has won both the “Best of the Best” and “People’s Choice” awards in the same year.
Second place in the overall taste test went to Montpelier, Ohio and last year’s winner, Bloomington, Minnesota, took third place.
