Pembroke Pines Enters Finals for Best Tasting Tap Water in America

Pembroke Pines tap water was selected as a finalist for best tasting city water in the country while competing with four other cities for a $15,000 prize to publicize its water.

In a blind taste test, nearly 100 mayors compared Pembroke Pines tap water to 4 other finalists, including Racine, WI, Albany, NY; Denton, TX and Rochester, NY. The taste test was held by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, an advocacy and leadership organization for cities with populations of more than 30,000. The taste test was held during the organization’s annual meeting last weekend in Baltimore. Racine, WI was chosen as the winner. Click here to read the full story.
