Rogerson, Idaho Places 2nd in the Great American Water Taste Test

Rogerson Water District, located in south Twin Falls County, achieved second place amongst national competitors in the Great American Water Taste Test. The competition is held annually at the National Rural Water Rally in Washington D.C., where water samples from across the nation are submitted and tested for clarity, taste, and odor. Rogerson originally placed first in the state at Idaho Rural Water Association’s Annual Conference in March, 2014. A sample of their water was then delivered to D.C. for the national competition.

Rogerson is a small community with limited resources, yet their staff still manages to deliver high quality, delicious water to its customers. A special congratulation goes out to the operators of the Rogerson Water District for performing a job that so many of us take for granted. This award brings to light the hard work that drinking water operators and public works employees execute day and night, and which generally goes unnoticed. Do you know where your drinking water comes from? Do you know who ensures you can drink clean, safe water each day?

Idaho Rural Water Association is a non-profit association of water and wastewater systems in Idaho that primarily serve populations of 10,000 or less. Idaho Rural Water Association's mission is to provide technical assistance, training and a strong representative voice for the benefit of Idaho's small water and wastewater systems. By working together, we can help protect Idaho’s source of water and continue to provide safe drinking water and wastewater services to our local communities. Rogerson’s achievement is indicative of what Idaho Rural Water Association would like to help all of Idaho maintain: a high quality of life for current and future generations.
