Bottled Water vs. Tap Water - Yakima's Drinking Water Among Cleanest in Country

Yakima, wa -  With the extreme heat you may be guzzling bottled water to keep yourself hydrated, but you could be wasting money if you live in Yakima. 

The city has some of the cleanest drinking water in the country.

Yakima Irrigation and Water says it spends about $70,000 a year to keep the water crystal clear.

"Some people like Pepsi.  Some people like Coke.  But in terms of quality and safety, there's no difference," says Brown, manager of Yakima Irrigation and Water.

Brown says a twelve ounce bottle of water will cost about a dollar and a quarter.  You can buy 7,900 12-ounce bottles of Yakima water for the same price.
