Who has the Best Tasting Tap Water in Tasmania?
The Ixom Best Tasting Tap Water in Tasmania competition is a fun and exciting way to raise awareness of the quality of Tasmania’s drinking water and to recognise the efforts of local water service providers in delivering valuable water services to their communities.
The 2018 champion will be determined at a WIOA operations interest day to be held in Launceston at the Mowbray Racing Centre, Jellico Street, Mowbray.
