Eastern Municipal takes home award for best-tasting tap water

Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) recently announced they have been selected as the best-tasting tap water during the Multi-State Salinity Coalition conference in Denver last month.

Entries from California, Texas, Maryland, Montana and Colorado participated in the competition.

EMWD’s entry was produced at the district’s Desalination Complex, which removes salts from brackish groundwater and produces enough clean drinking water for tens of thousands of households each year. EMWD conducts more than 40,000 water quality tests each year to ensure it meets or exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards.

The Multi-State Salinity Coalition is a professional organization of water agencies throughout the southwestern United States that collaboratively work to address salinity issues in water supplies and promote advancements in desalination and water reuse.

“We are incredibly proud of the water quality we provide every day to our customers,” EMWD Board President Phil Paule said. “In honor of this award, we will be toasting with a glass of award-winning EMWD tap water and we thank the Coalition for the opportunity to showcase our commitment to high-quality water supplies.”
