BOONVILLE — The Village of Camden was named on Aug. 3 as the winner of the 2018 Tap Water Taste Contest at this year’s Boonville-Oneida County Fair. The competition, organized by the Oneida County Health Department, is meant to promote awareness of the value of public drinking water.

Camden’s water system was one of five represented in the contest. Behind Camden, participants gave Deansboro water the second highest number of points.

The contest is part of a friendly statewide tournament.

Camden’s water will advance to a regional competition to be held Aug. 10 at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse. The winner of this regional contest will advance to the finals at the New York State Fair.
