If you’re buying bottled water in Niagara Region, you are pretty much wasting your money.

For the second straight year, Niagara Region’s tap-water has been declared the best tasting in the entire province.

At the Ontario Water Works Association’s Annual General Meeting Taste Test Competition in early May, a sample from the Rosehill Water Treatment Plant in Fort Erie was submitted to the competition in hopes of bringing home gold, which it proceeded to do.

“Congratulations to the Water and Wastewater team at Niagara Region, and those at the Rosehill Water Treatment Plant for being selected as Best Tasting Tap Water. It validates the tremendous work being done by our staff at Niagara Region,” said Joe Tonellato, Director, of Niagara Water-Wastewater Services.

Niagara Region will now be competing at the American Water Works Association Best of the Best Test in Toronto in June.

In 2022, Niagara Region also claimed a win in Ontario Water Works Association’s Taste Test Competition when Niagara Falls Water Treatment Plant won the coveted award.
