The Westchester County Department of Health held its annual water tasting contest today at which residents sampled water from four of the County’s municipalities and proclaimed Croton-on-Hudson their favorite.
The blind taste test was held in recognition of National Drinking Water Week outside of the Michaelian Office Building on Martine Avenue in White Plains from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Nearly 140 people sampled water from the Village of Croton-on-Hudson, Town of Greenburgh, City of Yonkers, and City of Peekskill.
Croton-on-Hudson received the most votes (40), followed by Greenburgh (37), Yonkers (31), and Peekskill (30). Of the municipalities that participated, Croton-on-Hudson was the lone well water supplier.
