Albany wins state water title competition

31 Aug

• UPDATE: Albany emerged as the winner of the Drinking Water Taste Test held earlier today.

GEDDES, NY — Water, water, everywhere. Well, at least from a dozen communities.

That’s the field in the two rounds of the New York State Drinking Water Taste Test being held here today as part of the goings-on at the Great New York State Fair.

• The first round includes samples from New York City, Albany, Ovid (Seneca County), Afton (Chenango County) and Bolton Point (Tompkins County).

• The second round includes Clifton Park (Saratoga County), Clymer (Chautauqua County), Dix Hills (Suffolk County), Pulaski (Oswego County) and Johnsville (Montgomery County).

The general public is participating in the judging at the state Department of Environmental Conservation booth. Results are scheduled to be announced at 4 p.m.
