Suffolk County Water Authority Boasts Best Tasting Tap Water

May 15, 2012 1:47 PM

The Suffolk County Water Authority was recognized as having the best tasting tap water in the county by those voting in the Long Island Water Conference’s 27th annual Best Tasting Water Contest on Tuesday, May 8.

The results of the competition, which featured three other competitors, were announced this week in a press released issued by the Suffolk County Water Authority (SCWA). The contest was held during National Drinking Water Week at Farmingdale State College.

“We’re delighted that our water was chosen for its excellent taste, but our top priority is making sure it’s pure and safe,” said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeff Szabo in a prepared statement. “Our water is tested constantly and surpasses internal standards that are even more rigorous than the tough New York State and EPA regulations.”

The Nassau County winner—the Plainview Water District—will compete in a taste-off against the SCWA to determine which district has the best-tasting water on Long Island. A date for that competition has not yet been announced.

The SCWA services approximately 1.2 million residents.

I live in Hampton Bays and have had a water distiller in my basement for 15 years. If you see what comes out of the water you wouldn't drink it. I take sheets of plaster like material out that snaps in my hands. I would never drink it.
