Valdezians have long said our water is the best in the state, and it has finally been confirmed! The City of Valdez won first place in the Alaska Rural Water Association Water Taste Test at this year's conference. City staff submitted a 1-gallon sample from the City's water system.
Water samples were judged on a scale of 1-10 with a maximum score of 30 points (per judge) in the following categories: clarity, taste, and odor. The City took home the top prize with a total
score of 86 points!
With this win, the City of Valdez will represent Alaska and send a water sample to compete at the February 2023 National Rural Water Association Rally held in Washington, D.C.
