MEEGAN Fitzharris says work is commencing to install the first of six new water refill stations.

“Since 2014, the ACT Government has progressively installed 30 ‘Water on Tap’ refill stations in parks and public places across Canberra in an effort to reduce the use of disposable bottles and increase fresh, tap water consumption,” Meegan said.

“The water stations have proved popular and in coming weeks six new water stations will be installed at the Gungahlin Town Centre, Civic Square, Margaret Timpson Park, Manuka Oval, Cook shops and Kambah shops on Mannheim Street.

“The water stations are equipped with two bottle refill nozzles as well as a drinking fountain. They are wheelchair accessible and can easily be located in crowded areas. The water station at Manuka Oval has been custom designed to accommodate large crowds and includes multiple bottle refill nozzles and bubblers.”

Meegan has invited the community to have their say on the location of any future water refill stations by completing a short survey.

The water refill stations are part of the ACT Labor-Greens Parliamentary Agreement. Portable units are also available for hire from ACT Health at no cost for use at events. Contact 6269 1000 during business hours to arrange bookings.
