Salisbury’s Best-in-Maryland Drinking Water to Compete for National Title

Salisbury’s Best-in-Maryland Drinking Water to Compete for National Title

 

Salisbury – Mayor Jake Day is pleased to announce that the City’s drinking water, which was awarded Best Tasting Water in Maryland by the Maryland Rural Water Association, will compete for the title of Best Tasting Water in America at the National Rural Water Association’s “Great American Water Taste Test” competition on February 10th, in Washington, D.C.

 

Every year, state affiliates of the National Rural Water Association hold local contests to select a state-level winner.  A gallon of each state’s winning water is then sent for judging as part of the NRWA’s annual Rural Water Rally.  A round of tasting is held, and a panel of judges selects five finalists.  The final five samples are judged by a V.I.P panel at the Rural Water Luncheon on the final day of the rally.  Entries are judged on clarity, bouquet, and taste.

 

Salisbury’s water brought home the Best in Maryland trophy last May.  Judges for the “Toasting the Tap” competition evaluated samples from around the state, grading each on taste, appearance, and odor. Salisbury’s winning sample was collected from the Paleo Water Treatment Plant on Scenic Drive.

 

Salisbury has 11 wells which draw from the shallow unconfined Coastal Plain aquifer. The City’s water treatment process includes aeration, pre-chlorination, filtration, iron removal, disinfection, corrosion control, and fluoride addition. Last year the City produced over 2 billion gallons of clean, drinkable, delicious water.

 

2015 marks the third time Salisbury’s water has been recognized as the Best in Maryland, having previously taken the trophy in both 2008 and 2009.

This has to be a joke?

Ok genius, what does a septic overflow have to do with drinking water quality. Salisbury drinking water comes from a well, then it's treated. Although I don't think it's that good of a quality, it is much better than Princess Anne and Pocomoke. Best water out of the tap in the area is on Smith Island.

Genius, the waste water plant in Salisbury was constantly over flowing and where did that dirty sewage go? Back into our soil down into the water supply (gravity) thank the ASSHOLE X Mayor JIM IRETON.

JT,maybe you should reiterate your offer to pay moving costs to anyone who no longer wants to live here.There appears to be a lot of folks who are sick of Salisbury but never seem to leave.A little coaxing maybe?

If this drinking water in Salisbury is the best in Maryland then why is it leaving a black ring around my porcelain toilet bowl. It's just not mine either because I work for the city and the toilet bowls are cleaned every day at my place of employment. Not only is it a ring it has stains where the water runs down the bowl. This water is nasty and Jake Day is living in La La Land with his feel good issues.

So what happened to 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015?? Just because Jake Day is the new mayor doesn't make the water taste any better.

I agree with this person. My property value has gone down $60,000 since 2007 and I am extremely pissed off.

Your fault for over paying to begin with.Remember in the future;gains and/or losses in real estate are established in the BUYING of the property.If a person pays too much for a house they will eventually take a hit.
