FREEPORT, Maine — The western Maine town of Kingfield has been judged to have Maine’s best-tasting drinking water.

The Kingfield Water District and the Madison Water District were judged to have the best water at the Maine Rural Water Association’s 25th annual drinking water taste test, held Thursday in Freeport.

The Madison utility won for best chlorinated water, while Kingfield won for untreated water.

In a runoff between the two, Kingfield was named the winner. It will represent Maine in the Great American Water Taste Test in February in Washington.

For the contest, judges sampled water from community water supplies for taste, clarity and aroma.
