The Cascades natural aquifer has always made Bend's city drinking water quite tasty, and lots of others agree.  Recently, Bend Public Works employees entered some water samples into an American Waterworks Association competition, to identify the best water in the Pacific Northwest. The city's Justin Finestone says Bend's water won that competition, and now it's on to the national competition. "The American Waterworks Association National Conference is in June in Dallas and again, we'll be representing the Pacific Northwest; Oregon Washington and Idaho were at that conference and have a chance to be the best tasting water in the United States and we hope we win. We think we have a great shot because we know how good our water is. We know how much the breweries like it; and how good the beer tastes because of it, so we think we have a strong chance." Finestone says the water is judged on odor, flavor and aftertaste. He says Bend always gets high marks for it's water; but this year they feel will be "our" year to win.
