The winner of this year's Great American Water Taste Test: Columbus, Wis.

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. If you've traveled to a lot of places, you may have noticed that tap water tastes different depending on where you are. But it tastes the best straight from the faucets of Columbus, Wis., the winner of this year's Great American Water Taste Test. The National Rural Water Association, which ran the contest, judged regional waters based on color, clarity, smell and, most importantly, taste. And Columbus made a splash. It's MORNING EDITION.
