Callaway County Public Water Supply District No. 2 is a finalist in a statewide water taste competition known as the Great American Water Taste Test.
The contest is conducted in Missouri by the Missouri Rural Water Association.
Tony Cox, Water District No. 2 general manager, said he is pleased the district is a finalist in the water taste contest.
"Of course it is important to have high quality water," Cox said, "but it also is needs to taste good."
Cox said the water district is honored to be a finalist in the statewide taste-test competition.
"They receive samples from rural water districts from around the state. This caught me off guard when we learned we were a finalist. This is the first year we have entered the contest," Cox said.
