Over one hundred people offered their opinions on the taste of water supplied by seven municipal water treatment plants in Tompkins County, with the Southern Cayuga Lake Intermunicipal Water Commission, commonly known as Bolton Point Water System, receiving the highest number of favored votes.

The Tompkins County Health Department held the annual Tompkins County Drinking Water Taste Test on Sunday, April 30th, during Streets Alive! on N. Cayuga Street.

This friendly competition is conducted to recognize the work these water treatment plants do to provide safe, potable drinking water to the residents of Tompkins County. Voters determined that the Bolton Point Water System has the best tasting water in the county, beating six other participating water treatment plants.

Bolton Point Water System will now represent our county in an upcoming regional competition held by the New York State Department of Health.
