Montpelier Water A “Winner”

The old say­ing goes some­thing like this… “it’s in the water.” In Mont­pe­lier, that seems to be the truth.

Once again, Montpelier’s water has been deemed award win­ning. It placed fourth at this year’s Berke­ley Springs Inter­na­tional Water Tast­ing event in Berke­ley Springs, West Vir­ginia.

It’s not the first time that Montpelier’s water has been so hon­ored. The Bryan Times reports that the water also came in first in 2003, 2006 and 2007. In addi­tion to that, it has also placed sec­ond, third, and fourth a num­ber of times.

It’s a real credit to the excel­lent ground­wa­ter in Williams County accord­ing to Mont­pe­lier Water Treat­ment Plant employ­ees, who say the only thing they do that many other are munic­i­pal­i­ties don’t, is a lime soft­en­ing process, in which excess cal­cium and mag­ne­sium and iron are all removed in one process, giv­ing the water a kind of sweet taste.

Hamil­ton, Ohio’s water came in first.
