World Water Day Success!

Thank you all for coming out and taking the taste test challenge.  It was a fun event and people were surprised by what they thought was tap water/bottled water.  A big thanks goes out to Justin and his crew from the environmental coalition for teaming up with AWRA on this event.

The final score was 36 guessed correct and 26 incorrect.  Some people said they could taste the chlorine  after taste in the tap water and/or the plastic taste in the bottled water.  The most interesting comments were those that said they could taste chemicals but they didn't know if it was the extra minerals in the bottled water or the treated chemicals in the tap.  Overall a successful and eye opening event for all.
