Qldwater will be hosting a community water taste test to help Southern Downs Regional Council select its top drop to enter in the 2018 Ixom Best of the Best Queensland Water Taste Test. With samples from three of Council’s water treatment plants, plus a mystery source, participants in the taste test will be asked to judge the entries by colour, odour and taste using a scientifically proven water wheel.
The Best of the Best Queensland Water Taste Test has since grown to become a coveted national competition with the Water Industry Operators Association (WIOA) introducing it in New South Wales, ACT, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania.
