Congratulations to the operators of the Rossarden WTP who were awarded the Ixom 2020 Best Tasting Tap Water in Australia.

The Rossarden Water Treatment Plant, which is run in partnership with water services provider TRILITY, beat every other finalist from around the country to win the coveted award.

This is the second time Tasmania has won the national award, in 2016 water from TasWater’s Barrington Water Treatment Plant was named the best in the country.

The award acknowledges that TasWater is delivering great tasting, safe and reliable drinking water to Tasmania’s regional communities.

Rossarden’s water will now go up against global competition in the International Best Tasting Tap Water Competition in West Virginia next year.

The community of Rossarden can now celebrate after being acknowledged as having the best tasting tap water in Australia.

Congratulations to Adrian Rijnbeek from Xylem who has been accepted as the 40th member of the WIOA IDIOTS (Inducted as Delegates of the Inextricably Obstructed Tap Society).

Congratulations to all of the winners of the Spirit of Australia Awards that celebrate the Australian spirit of mateship. Australians are renowned to come together to provide unconditional help and support each other during times of need. It is this compassion and kindness that we want to recognise and we encourage you to share your stories and submit nominations to acknowledge someone who has supported those during challenging times.
