Green Island water tops at the tap
GREEN ISLAND -- The Village of green Island has the best tasting water in Albany County. That's the word from voters at the annual Albany County Tap Water Taste Test.
The annual test took place at the Empire State Plaza Concourse, where Green Island, with 194 points, blocked the Latham Water District's attempt at a three-peat. Latham has won the last two years, and scored 114 points this year.
Competing water systems were the City of Albany, City of Cohoes, Latham Water District, and the Village of Green Island.
Green Island will compete on a regional level this summer. The winner of that round goes to the finals at the New York State Fair.
