The BCWWA "Best of the Best" Tap Water Taste test competition is designed to highlight the incredibly high quality water that BC residents have access to from their taps. It is an opportunity for communities to celebrate their water and their water utility as a whole. As an organization whose position is to promote disinfection as a core component of safe, clean drinking water, the BCWWA has designed this competition for water samples that are taken at the tap within a distribution system that utilizes disinfection methodology.
All submissions will be asked to verify that they meet the BC Drinking Water Guidelines (letter from Health Authority or records demonstrating compliance) and residual disinfection is provided in their distribution system. They will also be asked to verify that the water samples for the competition have been taken from an end user’s tap.
