BC towns have (second) best water
The third place winner, Elkford, BC, is a town just southeast of where I grew up. I think it's safe to say that a place the size of Elkford (having a population of just over 2500 people) will be pretty excited about this win. Now, aside from being "the Wilderness Capital of BC" it can also boast "the third best water in the world."
Montpelier won the Best Municipal Water category, repeating 2003 and 2006 victories at the annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting.
Only one other community, Atlantic City, N.J., has had back-to-back victories in the same category, claiming gold in 1993 and 1994.
Second, third and fourth places for tastiest tap water this year went to three towns in British Columbia - Clearbrook, Elkford and Campbell River, respectively.
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, a former gold medal winner, came in fifth among 32 waters from 13 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces, event producer Jill Klein Rone said Tuesday.
