What’s in Your Tap Water, CNY?
Camden won the 2017 Tap Water Taste Contest, held at the Boonville-Oneida County Fair. Their water will move on to compete against others in a regional competition, with hopes of getting to the big leagues at The Great New York State Fair.
But what's in your water?
Now you can find out, thanks to the Environmental Working Group (EWP) who put together a database you can search, simply by entering your zip code. Their information is based on water testing data from the Environmental Protection Agency, from 2010 to 2015.
So what's in Camden's water that makes it so delicious? According to the database, the water was in compliance with safety standards, but 4 contaminants were slightly above the recommended levels although still well below the average level across the nation.
The EWG recommends that you filter your water before drinking it; a simple filtration pitcher is a great way to get that accomplished. It will still taste delicious...but maybe not as great as Camden's.
