West Palm Beach: best tasting tap water in PBC (hurry up & get the ceremony over with!)

A surprising honor for West Palm Beach and a spectacularly quick award ceremony in the middle of the afternoon on a Monday. Here is the story from Victoria Malmer at The Palm Beach Post:
     West Palm Beach has won first place in the "best tasting drinking water" contest by the Florida section of the American Water Works Association.
     An award ceremony is set for 2:15 p.m. today at the plant, at the corner of Australian Avenue and Banyan Boulevard.
     West Palm Beach Public Utilities competed against 18 municipalities. Each one submitted a gallon of water collected less than 24 hours before the taste test. Each sample was tasted at room temperature, to allow for any tastes or odors to be detected more easily.
NBC5/WPTV also has the story and you can see that here.
