No Three-peat in Tap Water Taste Test

Posted: Thursday, May 5, 2016 3:16 PM

And the winner is…. the Village of Green Island with the best tasting water in Albany County. That’s what voters said at the Empire State Plaza Concourse today at the annual Albany County Tap Water Taste Test.

The Village of Green Island scored 194 total points with the Latham Water District the runner up with 114 total points. The Latham Water District won the last two years.

The systems that participated were randomly assigned the following letters to prevent voters from associating a letter with a particular water system:

A = City of Albany
B = City of Cohoes
C = Latham Water District
D = Village of Green Island

Green Island now competes in the regional competition this summer. The winner of that round goes to the finals at the New York State Fair.
