MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- Mount Clemens in southeastern Michigan has been honored for the best drinking water.

Mount Clemens recently received the nod from the Michigan branch of the American Water Works Association. The competition was conducted by a state engineer, and three judges graded the city's water and others on clarity, taste and odor.

Mount Clemens water comes from Lake St. Clair. The city has its own water department and doesn't rely on Detroit, a major supplier of water to the suburbs.

Mount Clemens utility chief Charles Bellmore says the good taste is due to improvements in the water system, starting in 1996.
