Stanley Drinking Water Wins Second Place Award
The Town of Stanley has some of the best drinking water not only in the State of Virginia but in the entire country. The Town’s water won second place in the Virginia Rural Water Taste Contest in held in February earlier this year in Roanoke and this is the Town’s third first place win in the past ten years. The Town won first place in 2006, 2010 and 2012 and also won second place in 2008 and 2011.
In 2010 the Town was awarded the fifth best tasting water in the entire nation and a sample will be entered into the same contest later on this year. The Town of Stanley’s Mayor, Council and town staff takes great pride in providing its citizens with one of the best tasting, clearest and sweetest-smelling water possible.
