Best Tasting Surface Water in Texas

The City of Waxahachie has won the “Best Tasting Surface Water in the State of Texas” for 2019.  This award is presented to only one surface water system annually in Texas. 

The competition was held at the Texas Water Utilities Association (TWUA) Annual School, a water industry professional development event held March 3 - March 6, 2019 in Corpus Christi. Winners were selected through analysis and tasting conducted by a panel of judges during a blind taste test.

The competitors were made up of the winners from 9 TWUA Regional Best Tasting Water contests in 2018. The City of Waxahachie won the Best Tasting Surface Water contest at the North Central Texas Regional School in May 2018.  Winning this contest allowed us to compete in the Statewide Best Tasting Water competition representing our region.
