Mayville wins North Dakota American Water Works Assn.'s annual Drinking Water Taste Test competition
It is official—the city of Mayville has been voted the best tasting tap water in North Dakota. Eight cities competed in the Annual Drinking Water Taste Test at the 84th annual North Dakota Water & Pollution Control Conference in Minot, N.D.
Conference attendees voted Valley City, Mandan and Mayville as the top three contenders in a blind taste test, before a panel of judges made the final decision. The cities of Bismarck, Fargo, Garrison, Grand Forks and Wahpeton also competed. Mayville takes home a plaque and bragging rights. The city is located about 50 miles northwest of Fargo.
The North Dakota chapter of the American Water Works Assn. (NDAWWA) puts on the Drinking Water Taste Test during the conference every year. Past winners include Fargo (2011), Mayville (2010), Valley City (2009) and Grand Forks (2008).
The conference is a joint effort of NDAWWA, the North Dakota Section of the Water Environment Assn., and the North Dakota Section of the American Public Works Assn.
