LYNDONVILLE – Lyndonville captured the title for best-tasting water in Orleans County during the Strawberry Festival this past weekend in Albion.

The Orleans County Health Department had people try Sample “A” for Lyndonville and Sample “B” for Albion. Lyndonville was picked as best-tasting by 57 percent of the participants.

Both municipal water systems use water from Lake Ontario.

“This is a fun way to share with Orleans County residents the importance of safe water and the hard work all of the municipalities do to provide healthy, clear drinking water,” said Nola Goodrich-Kresse, public health educator for the county.

Lyndonville will now go to the regional water contest in Rochester and will be eligible to participate in New York State’s Best Tasting Water Contest at the New York State Fair.
