Yonkers wins annual Best Tap Water contest

Posted: Updated:
WHITE PLAINS -

Yonkers has been selected as the provider of the “Best Tap Water” in the Hudson Valley.

Judges decided from 10 communities Tuesday, including Bedford, Mount Vernon and Peekskill.

They tasted each one and voted for their favorite. All of the water comes from the same source, the Delaware and Catskill Aqueduct. However, the difference in taste is all about the types and the age of pipes that the water suppliers use.

Yonkers will advance this summer to the regional competition for the second time.
