Arlington Wins Best Tasting Water Contest

Once again Arlington's water is recognized as the best tasting in the biz.

A panel of judges participated in a blind taste test and conducting a flavor profile analysis. The judges then selected those with the best taste.

The competition took place at the Texas Water Utilities Association's North Central Texas Regional School, an event for industry professional development held at the University of Arlington on May 12 through the 16.

The contest is sponsored by the North Texas Laboratory Analyst Section of the Texas Water Utilities Association, who announced Arlington as the winner in the "best tasting surface water" category at the North Central Texas Regional School Best Tasting Water competition.

Surface water is considered as the water used by Arlington residents and many urban communities, says the city of Arlington in a press release. This type of water comes from lakes, rivers and streams.

“Our treatment team continues to do an excellent job, and we are honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Buzz Pishkur, Director of the Water Utilities Department. “The team has reaffirmed its recognized position as a leader in producing high quality and aesthetically pleasing water. Not a small achievement and one that we certainly appreciate.”
