Swan Reach on the Murray has the best tasting tap water in South Australia.

The annual competition was held in Murray Bridge on Wednesday and included more than a dozen samples from water facilities across the state, which were judged on colour, clarity, odour and ‘mouthfeel’.

Around 32,000 customers, including those in the Mid-Murray council area receive the award winning water.

SA Water’s Senior Manager of Water Expertise and Research Dr Daniel Hoefel said in the past four years, the state winners have all come from the Riverland or Murraylands region.

Swan Reach will compete for Australia’s best tasting tap water in October as part of National Water Week, in the home of last year’s winner – Hamilton in Victoria.
