Officials at the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water Association have found the best-tasting water in the first of four regional competitions held throughout Indiana.

On Wednesday, during the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water’s one-day Training class in Lebanon, the Town of Cicero won the fourth and final regional competition with the tastiest water. Participating water samples were judged on three categories: clarity, odor, and taste.

Cicero’s journey continues as it advances to the highly anticipated state-level competition, “The Best Tasting Water in Indiana Competition,” sponsored by Wessler Engineering. This showdown will take place at the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water’s Fall Conference in Fort Wayne this October, where they will compete with winners from the three previous regional taste tests held throughout the state.

The competition is part of the Quality On Tap! campaign, emphasizing the high quality, standards, and taste of rural water. The ultimate champion of the Best Tasting Water in Indiana will advance to vie in The Great American Water Taste Test, a national contest held on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., in early February 2025. This prestigious event forms part of the Rural Water Rally, an annual legislative gathering for the 50 state affiliates of the National Rural Water Association.
