Who has the best tasting tap water in Oneida County?

It's the Village of Camden.

Camden is the winner of the 2017 Tap Water Taste Contest that was held the Boonville-Oneida County Fair this week.  Five water systems participated.

Oneida County Health Department, Director of Health, Phyllis D. Ellis congratulated the Village of Camden, “We congratulate the Village of Camden and we recognize all of our public water systems in their efforts to provide safe drinking water to the residents and visitors of Oneida County.  Safe drinking water is one of our most vital resources.  It is due in large part to the hard work and dedication of the many water operation specialists that our tap water is inexpensive and safe to drink.”

The Camden Village water will advance to the August 11th Regional Competition to be held at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse.

The winner of that competition will advance to the Final Contest at the New York State Fair.
