COLD WATER AQUIFER: MSWD takes great pride
in winning multiple Best Tasting Municipal Water awards for our
outstanding drinking water. Having entered the Berkeley Springs International
Water Tasting Competition for the last 20 years, MSWD has brought home
eight medals (more than any other municipal water purveyor in the world): the
Gold Medal in 2004 and 1999; the Silver Medal in 2011, 2008, 2001 and 1997;
and the Bronze Medal in 2018 and 2003.
HOT WATER AQUIFER: Our extraordinary hot water aquifer is remarkable
and unique, providing mineral-rich, crystal clear, odorless, natural
hot mineral water to our many outstanding local hotels, spas, and rv
parks. The water is pumped from the ground between 105° and
180°. The healing and stress-relieving properties of this wonderful water
are well-documented and diligently protecting this resource is essential to the
health and strength of the local economy.
