Home Field Advantage Yields Results In Water Taste Test

A five-member panel of judges selected water taken from a drinking fountain in Albuquerque’s City Hall to be the “best-tasting water in the Rocky Mountain Section” at the 2014 Taste Test at the Albuquerque Convention Center on Monday.

The Taste Test, a regular event at the Joint Annual Conference of the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water Works Association (Section), submits water samples entered by various water utilities within the Section’s three states (New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming) to scrutiny for appearance, scent and taste. After two preliminary rounds, four finalists were evaluated to determine this year’s winner, the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (Water Authority).

In addition to the “best taste” designation within the Section, the Water Authority earned the right to enter a sample of its water in the national “Best of the Best” water taste contest at the American Water Works Association’s 2015 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Anaheim, California.

Second and third place in the Section competition went to East Cherry Creek Valley (Colorado) Water and Sanitation District and Aurora (Colorado) Water, respectively.

Here's some great coverage of the taste challenge:
