The City of Bothell walked away with top honors at the 11th Annual Best Tasting Water Competition on March 30, 2023. The event was hosted by the King County Subsection of the Pacific Northwest Section of the American Water Works Association (PNWS-AWWA).

The residents and commercial customers of the City of Bothell, can drink proudly, knowing that staff are providing drinking water that is reliable, safe and now judged the best tasting in King County.
