Mainers to determine best drinking water in state
BANGOR, Maine (AP) — The title of “Maine’s Best Tasting Water” is up for grabs.
Dozens of communities in Maine will vie next month for the title of best tasting drinking water in the state. The Drinking Water Taste Test will take place on Dec. 6 at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.
The Maine Rural Water Association says the event will place community water supplies into two categories. One category will be for water with a disinfectant, such as chlorine, and the other will be for water with no disinfectant.
Last year’s victor was Town Hall Apartments of LaGrange. The judges this year will include representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Orono Fire Department.
