IVGID wins Nevada’s Best Tasting Water contest
April 24, 2013
Incline Village General Improvement District won the Nevada Rural Water Association's Best Tasting Water in Nevada contest this year.
After blind taste-testing and examination, the winner of the Best Tasting Water in Nevada was recently announced at the 2013 Nevada Rural Water Association Training and Technical Conference at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. The Incline Village General Improvement District in Washoe County won the contest and title of the best tasting water in the state.
The winner was selected by a panel of judges from over a dozen entries across Nevada. Each unlabeled sample was judged on clarity, bouquet and taste.
Joe Pomroy, Director of Public Works; Harvey Johnson, Operations Supervisor; David Jenks, Treatment Supervisor; and other members of the IVGID team were on hand to accept the award on April 16.
The District's drinking water source is Lake Tahoe, with ozone and ultraviolet light treatments for disinfection, followed by chlorination to protect water quality within the distribution system. IVGID — which serves a population of about 9,300 — also won first place in 2012.
