The Suffolk County Water Authority was recently declared the winner of the Suffolk County portion of the Long Island Water Conference’s 36th annual Drinking Water Tasting Contest. This yearly competition sees water providers from across Long Island compete to see who has the best-tasting water on Long Island, with one winner coming from Suffolk County and one coming from Nassau County. 242 participants visited the LIWC’s table at Farmingdale State College to choose their favorites among the many water providers who competed.


“We always enjoy competing in the Long Island Water Conference’s Drinking Water Tasting Contest, but it is especially exciting to be declared this year’s winner,” said SCWA Chairman Charles Lefkowitz. “It was great to see such a positive response from so many students, faculty and others at Farmingdale State College throughout the two-day event. We are proud of the water we serve to our 1.2 million customers every day, and these results amplify that feeling even more.”


With its victory in hand, the SCWA gets to hold onto the coveted trophy for a year and win friendly bragging rights over its fellow providers. The Authority will also participate in the New York State Regional Metro Tap Water Taste Contest held in New York City in early August to compete for entry into the statewide contest held at the Great New York State Fair.
