Muskoka's tap water judged as one of the best tasting in the world

Some of the best-tasting tap water in the world can be found a few steps away - award-winning water that comes from their own tap.

This is the first time the District of Muskoka has entered an event and the Public Works Department of the District of Muskoka has earned a silver medal in the Municipal Water Category of the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting competition.

The water sample from Muskoka was judged alongside entries from other countries, such as Australia and Korea. The judges taste a variety of waters and rank which has the finest flavour in what is referred to as "the world's most prestigious water-tasting competition."

The District reminds homeowners that while a bottle of water typically costs $2.00 on the store shelf, Muskoka residents may fill it up to 400 times from their tap with award-winning municipal water for the same price.

Almost 13,000 customers are served by the District's nine water treatment plants, in towns and villages across Muskoka.
