Rochester Water Wins Taste Test
Rochester's water is the best tasting in the state, according to a competition held by the New York Section of the American Water Works Association.
Tap water from here and five other cities was used in a blind taste test at the group's annual conference.
The water was judged by a panel on taste, odor, clarity, feel in the mouth, and aftertaste.
Rochester came in first, followed by New Rochelle, and Canandaigua tied for third.
Mayor Tom Richards said Hemlock Lake has been providing the city with high quality water for 136 years, and it's an honor for Rochester's water to be named New York's best.
