Tennessee's tastiest tap water found in Maynardville

Tennessee's tastiest tap water found in Maynardville

Drinking out of the tap never tasted so good, at least for those living in Maynardville.

Out of 12 regions across the state, the small town can now boast it has the tastiest drinking water in the state.

Judges voted Maynardville number one out of about 230 water utilities across Tennessee. Each water entry was tested for clarity, smell and of course taste.

This is the first time Maynardville has won the state contest, but its water is used to getting awards. It has won the regional contest for the tastiest water four out of five years.
