There's something cold and refreshing about "famously hot" Columbia: its tap water.
The city's public water won top prize this weekend in a taste test pitting it against treated water from 11 other South Carolina municipalities, including Charleston and Greenville.
The tasting was part of the S.C. Environmental Conference in Myrtle Beach, sponsored by the S.C. section of the American Waterworks Association and the Water Environment Association of South Carolina.
Behind Columbia's was the tap water of Greenwood and Camden, the city said in a news release.
An independent group of panelists did the judging from samples of chilled tap water supplied by each entrant.
