By  | 

NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- When it comes to Michigan water, it's the Upper Peninsula against the Lower Peninsula.

Negaunee Township, near Marquette, has been declared the home of the best-tasting water in the U.P. by the Michigan section of the American Water Works Association.

Negaunee Township's water will be judged in September against water from four communities in the Lower Peninsula: Jackson, Lowell, Tekonsha and Mancelona.

One of the five will be declared the state champion.
