The City of Cheyenne's tap water was awarded 3rd place in a blind water taste test for the Rocky Mountains this week.

That's according to a news release from the Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities. 

The judges sampled tap water from Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico during the 2019 annual conference of the Rocky Mountain Section American Water Works Association. Water was judged on appearance, quality, order, and taste. Cheyenne's water comes from mountain streams in the Medicine Bow and Laramie Mountain Ranges, blended with water from the High Plains Aquifer.

Aurora Colo. took second place in the taste test, and Fort Collins took first place.
