It’s official! Mount Vernon has the best tasting water in the county. Taste testers picked the City’s Board of Water Supply for top taste in the Westchester County Department of Health’s annual municipal water taste contest in front of the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains.
Mount Vernon entered the contest for the first time in fifteen years, confident that the city’s drinking water would fare well. In the end Mount Vernon beat out last year’s winner, Cortlandt Consolidated Water District.
Congratulations to the Board of Water Supply for winning gulps ahead of the rest of contestants. Now it’s on to the New York State finals.
