2015 Water Reuse Conference: Click here for information

Rogerson Water District, located in south Twin Falls County, achieved second place amongst national competitors in the Great American Water Taste Test. The competition is held annually at the National Rural Water Rally in Washington D.C., where water samples from across the nation are submitted and tested for clarity, taste, and odor. Rogerson originally placed first in the state at Idaho Rural Water Association’s Annual Conference in March, 2014. A sample of their water was then delivered to D.C. for the national competition.

CEO’s from rural water associations around the nation accept awards for their state’s drinking water. Shelley Roberts, far right, accepted the award on Rogerson’s behalf. Shelley is the CEO for Idaho Rural Water Association.

Congratulations Rogerson!
