BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- The founder of the world's largest and longest-running water tasting competition says she's closing in on her goal of having sampled tap water from every U.S. state.

Jeanne Mozier says it's like collecting state quarters: She wants a full set.

Berkeley Springs is gearing up for the 23rd annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting competition on Feb. 23.

Mozier recently put the word out that she was looking for more contenders before time to register ran out, and a North Dakota town stepped up.

The entry from the Southwest Water Authority in Dickinsen, N.D., has cut the number of states yet to compete to just four -- Rhode Island, Oklahoma, Nevada and South Dakota.

This year will feature two new international competitors, as well -- Chile and Thailand. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
