Palm Coast water tastes great!
If you want a great tasting glass of tap water, head to Palm Coast. At a recent regional meeting of the Florida Section American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Florida Water Environment Association, the City of Palm Coast was recognized as having the "Best Tasting Drinking Water in Northeast Florida."
Judges from the University of North Florida taste-tested water samples submitted by several utility departments including St. Augustine, St. Johns County, and the Jacksonville Electric Authority. Palm Coast's water was rated first, based on taste, odor, color, and clarity.
“The Palm Coast Utility Department is constantly working to ensure that our citizens have the highest quality, best tasting drinking water in the entire State of Florida”, says Jim Hogan, Water Operations Manager for the City of Palm Coast. "Having this tremendous recognition from our peers is a clear validation of our efforts.
“Our staff is a dedicated team of professionals that take great pride in performing their jobs. We're all very proud that not only does Palm Coast's water meet all state and federal standards , but it tastes great too!”
Palm Coast's water will go glass-to-glass against other regional winners in Tallahassee at at statewide taste testing in the near future. The statewide winner will be eligible to compete in the “Best of the Best” competition to be held at the San Diego AWWA Annual Conference in June.
