Ohio city's water praised again

Hamilton recently competed in the "Best of the Best" Tap Water Tasting Event at a conference in Denver.

Hamilton was among the top five competitors, although it didn't win one of the top three prizes. The city's water last year won the Ohio competition for the American Water Works Association to qualify.
