THE Sunshine Coast can boast some of the best tasting tap water in Queensland.
Unitywater has placed second at this year's South East Queensland regional final of the Orica Australia 'Best of the Best' Queensland Water Taste Test.
The competition was judged by conference attendees as part of the Queensland Water Directorate's Water Connections tour hosted by Gympie Regional Council last week.
The water sample that was entered into the competition was taken from the Maroochydore area but Unitywater CEO George Theo said Moreton Bay residents could also be assured of exceptional tasting water due to Unitywater's rigorous water quality testing regime conducted across its entire service area.
"Unitywater monitors water quality as it enters our network from the bulk water supplier, making adjustments along the way and in our storage reservoirs to ensure that the water our customers receive out of their taps is of the highest quality," Mr Theo said.
Utilities that battled it out in the first semi-final included Bundaberg Regional Council, Gympie Regional Council, North Burnett Regional Council, Unitywater and Wide Bay Water/Fraser Coast Regional Council.
Bundaberg Regional Council took home the first prize.
