TAUD Drinking Water Contest

Annual Meeting
Each TAUD Region conducts a contest to determine the Best Tasting Water in the Region each year. These Regional contests will be conducted by the end of May. Winners in each Region will be entered in the Statewide contest to determine The Best Tasting Water in Tennessee. This contest will be conducted at The TAUD Annual Conference. Region Leaders of each Region will provide the Judges for this contest. The winning water will be entered into the National contest The Great American Water Taste Test that will be held in Washington D.C. as part of The NRWA Rural Water Rally. TAUD will fly the winning water and a representative from the winning utility to Washington for the contest. TAUD will cover the cost of the flight, hotel and meals for the representative.
