Gippsland Water drinking stations

Community event organisers from Stratford to Drouin will be able to offer patrons high quality tap water – with the introduction of new water drinking stations by Gippsland Water.

Gippsland Water’s Paul Clark said the new units encouraged people to choose the right water for the job.

“Victorians have a proud history of using tap water responsibly and permanent water use rules mean we can continue to enjoy using this precious resource wisely,” Mr Clark said.

“Using rainwater, and recycled water for non-drinking purposes, means we will always have plenty of fresh water for drinking, straight from the tap,” Paul Clark added.

“As we all know, tap water is the right water for drinking. Providing bottled water to hundreds of people can be an expensive exercise for community groups. The new portable units are easy to set up and provide a great free resource to our customers,” he said.

Mr Clark said the fountains were branded with ‘Choose Tap’ to encourage people to save money and the environment by opting for tap water instead of expensive bottled water.

“The drinking stations are easy to transport and set up and provide the option of filling up water bottles or drinking from a bubbler,” he said.

The ‘Choose Tap” water fountains will be showcased at the upcoming Warragul Farmers Market on 18 October.

Bookings for the water fountains can be made by emailing Gippsland Water’s Communications Team via the online booking form.
