CWD Wins Best Tasting Water

CWD Wins Best Tasting Water

The Champlain Water District is very proud to report in a blind taste test contest held at the New England Water Works Association’s (NEWWA) Annual Conference on September 20th; CWD was named the best tasting water in New England among the ten participants. The “Best Drinking Water” trophy is presently on display at CWD’s Water Treatment Facility at 403 Queen City Park Road in South Burlington, VT. This is the second time that CWD has been achieved this honor.


Three independent judges studied, tasted, and graded all entries, which were only identified by a number. As the New England winner, Champlain Water District now qualifies to send a sample of its water to the American Water Works Association’s annual conference and exhibition being held in Toronto, Canada in June 2023 to compete in the North American competition that will have water samples from across the U.S. and Canada all vying for the title of best tasting water in North America. 


“The award reflects CWD’s dedication to providing high quality drinking water to our 83,000 customers in Chittenden County. It takes a team of qualified and passionate employees to do what we do, with a supportive elected governing Board,” said Joe Duncan CWD General Manager.
