West Wilson Utility District (WWUD) was recently awarded top honors at the Region 5 Best Tasting Water Contest sponsored by the Tennessee Association of Utility Districts (TAUD).
The drinking water samples were judged on their clarity, bouquet and taste. Participating as judges for the event were Chuck Page of American Development Corporation, Tim Rogers of Rogers Hydrant Service and Taylor Marable of Rural Development.
TAUD conducted the Best Tasting Water in Tennessee in each of the association's 11 regions over the last few months. The winner of each region will now participate in a statewide competition at TAUD's Business of Running a Utility Conference at the Gatlinburg Convention Center on August 10. The statewide winner will then represent Tennessee in the Great American Taste Test held in conjunction with the National Rural Water Association Rally in Washington D.C. in February 2018.
TAUD Region 5 consists of Wilson, Sumner, Robertson, Davidson and Cheatham counties. In addition to WWUD, the other participating utilities were Hendersonville Utility District, LaGuardo Utility District, Madison Suburban Utility District and Portland Utility System.
