The Arcadia Water Utility of Western Wisconsin won the Blue Ribbon for best-tasting water today at the Wisconsin State Fair. Arcadia won the title in competition sponsored by the Wisconsin Water Association, an organization representing over 900 members of the drinking water profession. The 28th annual contest showcases the dedicated work of drinking water professionals to provide safe, high quality drinking water 24-hours-a-day.
Arcadia has won the state title three times in the past four years. Utility manager Gary Skroch attributes the titles to a mineral-rich source of groundwater, tapped at four wells in the city. Arcadia water employs eight water professionals.
