Lincoln Wins Water-Tasting Competition

The Lincoln Water System emerged as the 2014 winner of our annual water-tasting competition. This is the second win for Lincoln; in their last turn as Nebraska's Best-Tasting Water (in 2009), they placed third in the national competition.

Lincoln dethroned the City of Fremont, who has held the crown for the past four years. Although Lincoln was the overall winner, the City of Aurora was voted the best-tasting in the untreated water category. Samples were submitted by Aurora, Blair, Columbus, Fremont, Kearney, Lincoln, and Norfolk.

Six individuals served on our panel of judges: Lincoln will represent Nebraska at this year's national contest in June at ACE in Anaheim.
