Water Taste Contest Begins May 6th!

AWWA Drinking Water Week* is just about here. That means that Long Island’s water suppliers will once again compete to see who will be judged by the public as the very best tasting water in each county. Who will take home the trophies for “Best Tasting Water” in 2019? On May 6th, the contest is open to all. Have a drink on us!

Last year’s winners were both NSWCA members. In Suffolk County, the Greenlawn Water District was judged to be the best, while in Nassau County, voters chose the Oyster Bay Water District as the best tasting. Will they repeat in 2019? Or will the previous year’s winners, South Huntington Water District (Suffolk) and Franklin Square Water District (Nassau) reclaim the title?  Or will other suppliers take home the gold?No one knows for sure, but by sampling and voting, residents of all districts can weigh in on this most important topic.

Organized by the Public Relations Committee of the Long Island Water Conference, the 2019 Water Taste Contest will take place May 6th through May 10th at the 50,000-square foot SUNY Farmingdale Campus Center. The NSWCA urges all members to volunteer and to assist the Public Relations Committee in manning the informational display booth.

Please notify Tim McGuire at H2M if you are interested in participating in this year’s water taste contest via email: or phone: 631-756-8000 ext.1415.

For more than 40 years the American Water Works Association and its members have celebrated Drinking Water Week – a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role that water plays in our daily lives. Please join AWWA as we celebrate drinking water! This year the theme is “Protect the Source”.
