Cheers! Albany water scores high in taste test
water placed second of 13 entries from throughout western Oregon in the
annual Best-tasting Water contest, sponsored by the Cascade to Coast
subsection of the American Water Works Association. The City of Bend
took first place and the City of Cottage Grove's water was third.
Results were announced in February in Eugene.
According to John
Adams, Cascade to Coast subsection president, "The plaque showing second
place is an award for bragging rights among the communities
participating but it is also a confirmation of the quality of the water
we produce every day. Congratulations to everyone!"

toilet, they can hang up in your pipes, the City's sewer system, or
further downstream. For information about what should and should not go
down your drains, click What Not to Flush.
