SYRACUSE – The Village of Lyndonville’s public water supply was named the best-tasting tap water in New York after winning the contest at the State Fair today.

Lyndonville won the Orleans County contest during the Strawberry Festival in June and on Aug. 12 won the western regional competition at the Rochester Public Market.

Lyndonville, which uses water from Lake Ontario, squared off against other regional winners at the State Fair today, including the Village of Canton from the northern region, City of Albany from the capital region, New York City Department of Environmental Protection from the metro, and Bolton Point from the central region.

This is the 31st year that the Tap Water Taste Contest has been held in New York State. The contest goal is to inform the general public about the value and quality of public drinking water through a fun, non-scientific competition, according to the Water and Wastewater Education and Outreach Committee, which manages the event.
