#10 Los Angeles

Everyone we know in Los Angeles will be absolutely unsurprised by this result. The tap water there is not exactly lauded — Angelenos frequently complain about it, and if our study determines anything, it’s that they all have a reason to be sipping bottled or filtered. Our panel was unanimously disappointed by the flavor of this tap water, all of them commenting on the city’s “swimming pool water.” When chlorine is the overwhelming flavor — and scent — of a water, it earns ratings like these: on a scale of 60-100, not one panelist ranked Los Angeles over a 63. Maybe this is a trade-off for that perfect weather you guys like to brag about?
