South Huntington Takes Suffolk

In sports and in competitions of all types, the proverbial three-peat, winning three in a row, is very rare. The South Huntington Water District was recently judged the winner of the Long Island Water Conference’s ‘Best Tasting Water Contest’ in Suffolk County for the third year in a row!


Commissioner Ciro DePalo spoke for the District. “Water supply is something that most people take for granted. Turn the tap and there it is, but in fact it requires a tremendous amount of scientific and engineering expertise as well as diligent infrastructure maintenance. The importance of the job that our South Huntington Water District people do in providing a plentiful supply of the highest quality water, day in day out, regardless of weather, is recognized by this competition. That’s why my fellow commissioners and I are especially proud to receive this third consecutive award, and our District’s 11th overall. ”

The Best Tasting Water Contest trophy is at the SHWD administration building, 75 Fifth Avenue South, Huntington Station NY. Commissioner DePalo invited the public to stop by and see it. “And we’re going to be going for victory number twelve in next year’s competition!” he added.
