Best tasting tap water finalist in Victoria

For the second year running, Westernport Water has been selected as having some of the best tasting tap water in Victoria as voted by water industry professionals.

Water samples from across the state are judged on odour, appearance and taste at the annual Water Industry Operators Australia conference to find out who has the Best Tasting Tap Water.

The water taste test conducted each spring offers a good way to compare tap water and recognises the efforts of water corporations and their water treatment teams in delivering quality water products and services.

Quotes attributed to Westernport Water’s Managing Director, Peter Quigley

“To be acknowledged as a finalist two years running is a fabulous achievement and is a testament to our Water Treatment Team’s focus on continual improvement.”

“Our team should be proud of this accomplishment, they work tirelessly to provide high quality tap water to our customers and community year round and it’s great that they have been recognised by their peers.”

“Being named as a finalist again shows that our treatment plant upgrades and real-time monitoring of water quality in Candowie Reservoir is making a difference.”

“Congratulations to Lower Murray Water and their Mildura Water Treatment Plant Team on winning this year, we look forward to competing against the best in the state in 2021.”
