It was another year at the Academy Awards of Water in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia where hundreds of municipalities, private water agencies, and bottled water companies from around the world come together to compete for the “best tasting” title.
Berkeley Springs is not an easy competition to win. It is an accredited, international competition where judges take their jobs very seriously. Ten judges taste and rate each water entry for appearance, aroma, taste and aftertaste (yes, it should leave you thirsty for more!)
Santa Ana topped all other California waters in the Best Municipal Water category this year with Mission Springs Water District and Desert Hot Spring trailing behind it. For the past five years, Santa Ana has grabbed the bronze, silver and gold, earning the distinction of producing the nation’s best and highest quality tap water in 2014. It’s a distinction the City is proud to share with the community. In fact, you may have seen our “Award Winning” campaign around town at community events, while waiting for a bus, or wrapped around our community outreach vehicle.
As a Santa Ana resident, you can be assured that your water not only exceeds the drinking water health standards required by both state and federal agencies, it is among the best tasting water on tap!
