[ARCHIVED] Town of Erie Wins “Landslide Victory” in Best Water in Colorado Competition

Keystone, CO - The Town of Erie Wins “Landslide Victory” in Best Water in Colorado Competition.

This year the joint conference of the Rocky Mountain section of American Water Works Association (RMSAWWA) and the Rocky Mountain Water Environment Association (RMWEA) is being held at Keystone Resort Colorado. The conference runs from September 8 through September 11.

Every year the RMSAWWA sponsors a potable drinking water taste test that water purveyors can participate in. The water purveyor provides 2, one-liter samples of their drinking water. The samples are kept for one day by the RMSAWWA and all brought to the same temperature. A Panel of 5 judges taste and judge the different waters in a blind test. The panel was led this year by Tyson Engels, lead Drinking Water Engineer for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Two other panel members were from the media and two were water professionals.

The competition was held September 10, 2013. Fourteen water purveyors from around the state submitted entries.

The Town of Erie’s entry was selected unanimously as the best water in the competition. It was reported by the judges as a landslide victory. Second place was the City of Pueblo. Third Place was Denver Water.

As the winner of this competition, Erie will now go onto the national "Best of the Best" taste test at the annual American Water Works Association conference in Boston in June.
