HARFORD COUNTY, MD — Pour a glass of water to celebrate Harford County's H20 winning "Best in Show" at the American Water Works Association’s regional taste test challenge.
Winners were determined by a panel of judges who rated each water sample on its flavor characteristics. The American Water Works competition is divided into two categories, the winners of which go on to face each other to earn the award.
In the surface water treatment category, the Abingdon Water Treatment Plant took first place among seven competitors and then bested the city of Salisbury, the winner in the groundwater treatment category, to take the competition’s top prize. Also in the groundwater category, Harford’s Perryman Water Treatment Plant finished second out of 10 entries.
With this win, the Abingdon Water Treatment Plant has qualified to compete in the American Water Works Association’s national competition in June of 2024 to be held in Anaheim, California.
“Water is a vital resource and Harford’s dedicated teams continue to deliver high quality drinking water to our customers,” Harford County Executive Bob Cassilly said. “I’m proud to raise a glass in honor of these professionals and cheer them on to the national competition.”
