Tap Water Winner

Commissioners and trophy

It’s official! The Greenlawn Water District has been voted the Best Tasting Water in all of Suffolk County! Congratulations to the entire District staff, our Commissioners and Superintendent Bob Santoriello on a super job!

As the winner of the 32nd annual Tap Water Taste Contest, the GWD will next be entered into the regional competition which culminates in the New York State Fair in Syracuse to determine the best tasting water in the entire state! Winners at the regional and State Fair competitions receive recognition plaques from the judging body, the Water and Wastewater Education and Outreach Committee (WWEOC).

“The significance of this victory does not only recognize the efforts of a team of dedicated individuals, but also represents a snapshot of applied technology,” Commissioner John McLaughlin commented. “It speaks to the processes we use, the regulations established for compliance, and the infrastructure we build and maintain in order to bring this great resource to our residents is sufficient quantity.”

PS:  This isn’t the first time Greenlawn Water District has taken home the coveted trophy.  The District has won eight times, the last occasion in 2007.
