National Water Taste Test

The WIOG National Water Taste Test compares the taste, odour and appearance of water samples submitted by water authorities around New Zealand. It’s a fun and exciting way to raise awareness of the quality of New Zealand’s drinking water and to recognise the efforts of local water operators and their teams in delivering safe, clean drinking water to their communities.

The event is proudly sponsored by IXOM and will be held this year at the WIOG Annual Conference, Napier Conference Centre, 26th to 28th May 2021 and is designed to find “New Zealand’s Best Tasting Tap Water” and is open to all municipalities, both councils and utility operators.

The Grand Final will be conducted at lunch time on Thursday 27th May 2021 and the winning water announced at the awards dinner on the Thursday evening.
