Conklin Named Best Local Drinking Water
(CONKLIN, NY) The Town of Conklin was recently voted the best-tasting water in Broome County, in a contest hosted at a Binghamton Mets Baseball Game, at NYSEG Stadium.
Municipalities in Broome County were encouraged to enter a gallon of their drinking water in the contest for attendees at the B-Mets game to sample and vote for their favorite.
Conklin was voted the winner, beating Binghamton, Endicott and Kirkwood.
“We deliver outstanding services and great-tasting water in Conklin,” said Water Superintendent Tom Delamarter. “We are grateful to be chosen the best local drinking water and look forward to representing Broome County in the regional and hopefully State-wide contest.”
Conklin’s water will now be judged at the regional level, with hopes to be selected as one of ten finalists to compete in the New York State Drinking Water Taste Test, at the New York State Fair.
This is Conklin’s first year entering the contest.
Now in its 27th year, the New York State Drinking Water Taste Test highlights the importance of good-tasting, safe drinking water.
