You may have watched this year’s Academy Awards for film, but did you hear about the Academy Awards of Water?

Water Citizen News features a post about the event, held in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, which featured more than 100 different types of water to be taste tested.

US and Canadian municipal water competitors continued to duke it out with past gold medal winners claiming four of the top five awards in this category Hamilton, OH won first adding another gold to their back-to-back golds in 2009 and 10.  Emporia, KS won the silver, Clearbrook from British Columbia, Canada won the bronze and Montpelier, OH tied for fourth.  Two other waters also tied for fourth: Dickinson, ND and Eldorado Springs, CO.  Independence, MO placed fifth.
