MPWC Takes Top Honors at NJ AWWA Taste Test Competition

Since 1926, the men and women of the Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission have remained focused on achieving the mission that is proudly posted on our website and throughout our facilities:

The mission of the MPWC in 1926, and continuing today, is to supply the best product at the most affordable cost to our customers.

As one of only two regional water authorities in the State of New Jersey, the MPWC is the smaller of the two agencies. The dedicated employees see the attainment of a model water utility in the State of New Jersey as a journey and not a destination. This can be evidenced in so many ways by what they do daily. I offer these comments as an observer sitting courtside who continues to witness the dedication, commitment and vigilance of a team in the pursuit of excellence.

In March of 2017, water samples from the MPWC were entered into the annual New Jersey Chapter of the American Water Works Association Taste Testing competition held in Atlantic City.  The MPWC placed first again, having also earned the title in 2015.  Every man and woman who serves the MPWC owns a piece of that award & recognition.

It is sometimes very difficult to see what might appear to be the intangible – safe and tasteful drinking water. The men and women of the MPWC know what it takes to produce a high quality product and the service that goes along with that product, and they do so with pride and distinction.
