Louisville Water Invites You to Celebrate Another National Title

Thursday June 13, 2013

Louisville Water Wins Best of the Best

Louisville Water will celebrate its "People's Choice" award for best tasting tap water in North America by serving Louisville pure tap® on Friday, June 14 from 11:30am – 1:30pm on Jefferson Street, between 5th and 6th Streets, in front of Louisville Metro Hall.

Louisville Water will set up its Louisville pure tap® to GO water fill station. We invite the community to share a toast in celebration of the "People's Choice" award for best tasting tap water in North America. Stop by to fill your container and enjoy a drink of Louisville pure tap®. The first 300 people will receive one of Louisville Water's BPA-free, 20-ounce reusable bottle. We'll have a special toast at noon.

Every year the American Water Works Association hosts a conference and exposition for water utilities from Canada and the U.S. Over 12,000 water professionals attended this year’s conference in Denver, CO. In a new “People’s Choice” competition at the conference, attendees examined, sniffed and tasted over 20 samples of tap water to declare the national winner.

Louisville pure tap® won the “Best Tasting Tap Water in North America” title in 2008. It won a regional taste test with utilities in Kentucky and Tennessee in 2012 to be eligible for this year’s national competition.

In 1996, Louisville Water was the first utility in the nation to trademark tap water in an effort to promote the quality, value and innovation behind something most people take for granted. The Louisville pure tap® campaign provides reusable bottles, cups, pitchers and a mobile water unit to over 800 organizations each year to stress the value of a high-quality drinking water supply.
