FREEPORT — The Fryeburg Water District has won bragging rights and a trip to the national water tasting championships at Maine's 26th annual drinking water taste test competition.

Fryeburg was named the overall winner at Thursday's competition, held by the Maine Rural Water Association in Freeport.

For the testing, water districts compete in chlorinated and non-chlorinated categories. The winners in each category then compete in a "taste-off" to determine the winner, which represents the state in the National Rural Water Association's Great American Water Taste Test in Washington, D.C., in February.

The New Portland Water District was the winner in the non-disinfected category, while Fryeburg was tops for disinfected water.
