The Village of Pulaski retained its title for the best-tasting drinking water in Oswego County in an informal contest sponsored by the Oswego County Health Department. Five municipal water districts took part in the 21st annual contest, held May 28 at the Fulton Memorial Day Salute.
Visitors were invited to taste samples of public drinking water and cast votes for their first and second choices. When all the votes were counted, Pulaski was the winner with 50 points. The village of Mexico placed second with 45 points, followed by Richland with 44, city of Oswego with 24, and Fulton with 14 points.
The contest is sponsored by the Environmental Division of the Oswego County Health Department in conjunction with the New York chapter of the American Water Works Association.
Pulaski’s water will be entered in a regional competition and regional finalists from around the state will compete at the New York State Fair for the state’s best-tasting drinking water. The village of Mexico earned the honor of best in the state in 2002 and 1991.
