Streamline - Spring 2014 - (Page 35)

Curtis Water Wins Big in D.C. Neb., was named the best tasting in the nation at the 2014 Great American Water Taste Test, held on Feb. 12 in Washington, D.C. Stansbury Park, Utah, won the silver medal and Callaway County Public Service District 2 in Fulton, Mo., won the bronze. Shenandoah, Va., and Point Sebago Outdoor Resort from Casco, Maine, completed the five finalists. Each finalist was selected from a preliminary tasting that included entries from every state in the nation. Each state rural water association conducts an annual water taste test, and the winners qualify for entry in the national taste test. The winners were selected by a panel of four judges, including Jacqueline Ponti-Lazaruk, Assistant Administrator WATER FROM CURTIS, for the RUS Water and Environment Program; John Carter, Farm Service Agency; Jennifer Bell, White House Office of Management and Budget; and Kent Evans, RUS Water and Environment Program. Each entry is judged on clarity, bouquet and overall taste. In addition to winning second in the taste test, Stansbury Park earned a unique honor from Utah Senator Mike Lee. Lee, who hosts "Jell-O with the Senator" every Wednesday, used Stansbury Park water to make the snack for the Feb. 12 event.
