The American Water Works Association has announced that the City of Greeley has won the thirteenth annual “Best of the Best” Tap Water Taste Test. The event, comprised of 34 regional winners from water-tasting competitions across North America, was held at AWWA’s Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE17) in Philadelphia, PA.
The People’s Choice award winner, as determined by the conference attendees, was also awarded to the City of Greeley. There were almost 1,000 entries for the People’s Choice competition with conference attendees sampling and casting a ballot for the best tasting water.
This is the first time in history that a municipality has won both awards in the same year.
