Public Information committee report

At the annual conference in November, the committee once again held a water tasting contest where Lincoln Water System was victorious at having the overall best-tasting drinking water. The City of Aurora was voted as the best-tasting in the non-treated category. Another fun children's poster contest was held at the conference. Check out the winning entries!

Drinking Water Week is May 3-9. This year's theme will again be "What do you know about H2O?" Governor Ricketts will be signing a proclamation declaring Drinking Water Week in Nebraska.
