The Environmental Working Group recently put out its list of the cities with the best water and Austin ranked 7th.

Here’s a look at the top ten:

1-Arlington, TX

2-Providence, RI

3-Ft. Worth, TX

4-Charleston, SC

5-Boston, MA

6-Honolulu, HI

7-Austin, TX

8-Fairfax County, VA

9-St. Louis, MO

10-Minneapolis, MN

The EWG found there are still plenty of concerns about the water we drink including that “water utilities spend 19 times more on water treatment chemicals every year than the federal government invests in protecting lakes and rivers from pollution in the first place.”

Since 2004 the EWG has analyzed nearly 20 million records. Their goal is to create the single largest database and includes 48,000 communities. To see how your community water system compares and what’s in your water go here and type in your zip code.
