I saw an article over the weekend that mentioned how each state stacks up regarding tap water. These days, everything is up for being rated...or at least discussed. I didn't think much about it because Williston has good tap water. I have been to other cities and towns in North Dakota whose water tasted awful. So, let's dive in and see where we as a state land regarding tap water.

The quest for the best tap water in the United States has led to a ranking by WiseVoter, shedding light on the states that excel in providing clean and safe drinking water. Here are the top 10 states with the best tap water.

  1. Hawaii: Hawaii has the best tap water in the U.S. because its water comes from clean sources and is treated with strict rules.
  2. Maine is known for its beautiful scenery, but it also has some of the cleanest and most refreshing drinking water in the country.
  3. Vermont is known as the "Green Mountain State," and its water is just as clean as its scenery.
  4. Rhode Island: Even though it's a small state, Rhode Island has some of the best tap water in the country.
  5. South Dakota is in the middle of the United States. It has beautiful scenery and water that is as clear as glass.
  6. Montana: Even though Montana has rough terrain, it still has great tap water for its people.
  7. Minnesota is known as the "Land of 10,000 Lakes," and its tap water is also very good.
  8. New Hampshire is a state in New England. It has some of the best tap water in the country, as well as beautiful fall scenery.
  9. North Dakota: The Midwest shines because North Dakota works hard to make sure its drinking water is clean and safe.
  10. Colorado: Rounding out the top 10 is Colorado, which is in the Rocky Mountains and has cool tap water.

These states have set a high bar when it comes to water quality, ensuring that their residents have access to water that is not only safe but also delicious. While Hawaii takes the top spot, it's evident that the pursuit of pure tap water is a shared mission among many states, reminding us of the importance of safeguarding this precious resource for generations to come.
