TUPPERS PLAINS — The Tuppers Plains Chester Water District received top honors for having the “Best Tasting Water in Rural Ohio” at the Ohio Rural Water Association’s 2013 Annual Management Conference & Exposition, held in Athens last week.
Rural water systems across the State of Ohio competed for the honor and the right to represent Ohio in the National Rural Water competition in Washington DC in February.
In 2000, the Tuppers Plains-Chester Water District won top honors in Ohio and also in Washington D.C. where they were number two in the nation.
“We will be looking to win number one in the nation this year,” said Donald C. Poole, General Manager, in announcing this year’s state win.
“This award is a direct reflection of all the employees of the District and the hard work and dedication to the public service they provide. I have seen it day in, and day out, in the work they do. I cannot be happier for our hard working staff and community who can say again ‘we are the best,’” Poole commented.
The District is now holder of the traveling trophy that comes with the win and has it on display in the main office at Tuppers Plains.
