America's top 10 best tap water - Honolulu is #6

I saw an interesting article on the best and worst tap water in American cities.  I've always thought that our tap water was pretty darn good, but it's nice to know for sure.

Cities with the best water:

  1. Arlington, TX
  2. Providence, RI
  3. Fort Worth, TX
  4. Charleston, SC
  5. Boston, MA
  6. Honolulu, HI
  7. Austin, TX
  8. Fairfax County, VA
  9. St. Louis, MO
  10. Minneapolis, MN

The article says that, "Experts still agree  that drinking tap is preferable to drinking bottled water. Bottled water is much more expensive than tap, it takes a huge toll on the planet, and it's not necessarily any safer than tap. "Bottled water is not regulated in the same way as tap water," says Olga Naidenko, a senior scientist at EWG. "With bottled water, consumers often do not know what they are getting, and 25 to 40 percent of bottled water on the market is simply tap poured into a bottle."

Just one more real to live in Hawaii.  Clean water!
