Th Westchester County Health Department is holding its annual “Best Tasting Water” contest tomorrow in front of the county office building in White Plains. I’ve never really understood this. The only water I know that should have any kind of taste is the water that comes with a glass of Jack Daniels.
Other than that, if there’s any kind of bite to the fluid, it’s probably polluted.
But what the hell. Here are this year’s candidates– Greenburgh, Mount Vernon, Ossining, United Water New Rochelle, Westchester Joint Water Works and the City of Yonkers. How come the village of Buchanan, home of Indian Point, is never in the contest?
Anyway, Croton won the best water title last year. Yonkers is also a past winner.
Let’s handicap this derby. I’m placing 5-2 odds on Mount Vernon, the favorite. That city needs a positive press release.
