It’s rare that someone polishes off a glass of tap water, then says something like, “That’s the tastiest water I’ve ever had.” Apparently it does happen, though, as proven by the city Chenango, New York. A t the recent Broome County Fair, Chenango, found themselves holding the prize for the best-tasting municipal tap water.
The contest is a fairly interesting one, and it’s completely run by the local health department. The goal is to raise public awareness of municipal tap water, and the results are wholly unscientific. During the fair, the health department passes out information on various types of water supplies and the safety of each. Each year, about 50 tasters take part in the testing of water from many towns around Broome County. This year, they judged water from Binghamton, Chenango, Conklin, Kirkwood, Vestal, and Whitney Point. Last year, the top prize went to Kirkwood.
This isn’t the end for Chenango. Instead, they’ll head for the Syracuse finals, so their water can be compared to other regional water supplies at the state fair.
While we’re not entirely sure our technology can give a municipality the edge in an unscientific tasting contest, we are certain that we can offer cities and public water districts the edge when it comes to a more efficient process. Thanks to choices like our channel mixer, ozone mixer, triple action static mixer, and lined static mixers, we can offer cities the power they need to do a far better job in the water treatment process. To learn more about what options we offer in the world of municipal water treatment technology, contact us today so we can begin the process of enhancing your water, and maybe even its taste too!
