Best Water? Latham beats Guilderland

GUILDERLAND — After being declared the town with the best-tasting water two years in a row, Guilderland lost its title this year, to Latham, by a margin of three points.

The Best Drinking Water in New York competition was held on Wednesday at the Empire State Plaza.

“It’s difficult to pull off a three-peat,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy in a press release. “I am impressed that the competition was so close and it shows that we have consistently good tap water in the area.”
