Drink up: Best Michigan water is down to the final 5

May 29, 2019

NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — When it comes to Michigan water, it’s the Upper Peninsula against the Lower Peninsula.

Negaunee Township, near Marquette, has been declared the home of the best-tasting water in the U.P. by the Michigan section of the American Water Works Association.

Township water supervisor Russ Williams can’t resist the opportunity to brag a bit. He says the regional award confirms what he already knew about the community’s water, which is pumped from wells.

The Mining Journal says Negaunee Township’s water will be judged in September against water from four communities in the Lower Peninsula: Jackson, Lowell, Tekonsha and Mancelona. One of the five will be declared the state champion.
