“Schenectady County is proud to have some of the most popular and tastiest drinking water in New York State as evidenced by our State Champions Town of Niskayuna, City of Schenectady and Town of Rotterdam,” said Anthony Jasenski, Chair of the Schenectady County Legislature.  “Our residents get to be the judge, so I encourage everyone to come down to the Farmers Market and choose who will represent Schenectady County in the Regional and State competitions.”
