People in Sammamish enjoy some of the best tasting water in the country.

At least that's what the water experts at the American Water Works Association think.

They voted the drinking water in this Seattle suburb top in the Pacific Northwest and the 2nd best tasting in North America.

The delicious news has Sammamish-ites proud, and rightfully so.

It was time to put this world-renowned water to the test.

A collection of KIRO 7 staff put on blindfolds and gave their honest opinions of what they tasted.
