AND THE WINNER IS…
Loveland, Colorado (September 11, 2017) – Who has the tastiest water in the Rocky Mountain?
According to the judges at a taste test at the 2017 Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water
Works (RMSAWWA) annual conference in Loveland, Colorado, Little Thompson Water District has the best water in the region. Eight municipalities competed for the title of best drinking water in the mountain west, based on taste, odor and appearance. The winner of this competition will represent the RMSAWWA at the national “Best of the Best” taste test at the AWWA Conference in Las Vegas next June.
Little Thompson provides drinking water to a 300-square mile area in Larimer, Weld and Boulder
counties. More can be learned about their utility by visiting ltwd.org. Taking second in today’s
competition was Aurora Water, with the City of Louisville coming in third.
Judging this year’s event were Tyler Silvy with the Greeley Tribune; Charles Lundquist from the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); Pinar Omur-Ozbek, an assistant professor of engineering and renowned water expert with Colorado State University; Victor Sam, an engineer with Stantec; and Jeanne Bennett-Bailey, past-president of the American Water Works Association.

The RMSAWWA covers Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico and has over 2,400 members, representing water utilities, engineering consultants and water treatment specialty firms.
