The Oregon Association of Water Utilities 36th Annual Technical and Management Conference, held each March at the Sunriver Resort, proved to be successful for all attendees.

At the annual awards banquet Rhododendron Water Association was named as the Best Tasting Surface Water in Oregon for 2014.

Rhododendron Water Association has excellent water, which was once again proven this year by an unbiased panel of four judges who blind taste tested drinking water from around Oregon, judging it on clarity, bouquet, and taste.

Rhododendron Water Association also won the award in 2011.

Rhododendron Water Association has been a member of the Oregon Association of Water Utilities (OAWU) since January 1994 and was also presented with a plaque commemorating its 20-year membership in addition to the Best Tasting Award.
