Best Drinking Water in the Nation? Macon, Georgia


Good golly, Miss Molly!

Macon’s drinking water has been judged best in the country in an annual contest.

Judges at the annual meeting of the American Water Works
Association in San Diego gave the honor to Macon this week in a
competition that’s similar to wine tasting.

Macon qualified for the national competition by winning top
honors in Georgia during last summer’s competition. The city’s
water authority sent water samples to San Diego for judging.

The water is regular county water judged at room temperature.

Lakeway, S.C., finished second and Silverdale, Wash., was third.

Some stories are as exciting as watching paint dry. You’re welcome. Since I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Macon, the story interested me.

They did talk about other things as well:
Climate change threatens water supplies
