Maine utilities compete for best-tasting water title

The Associated Press

FREEPORT, Maine — Bragging rights and a trip to the national water tasting championships are at stake as water utilities square off at Maine’s 25th annual drinking water taste test competition.

Dozens of water districts from around Maine are competing in the Maine Rural Water Association’s 31st annual drinking water taste test. Thursday’s competition is being held on the second day of the association’s annual three-day conference and trade show in Freeport.

For the testing, water districts compete in chlorinated and nonchlorinated categories. The winners in each category then compete in a “taste-off” to determine the winner, which will represent the state in the National Rural Water Association’s Great American Water Taste Test in Washington, D.C., in February.
