Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Throughout the summer of 2022, a pilot program consisting of 10 potable water bottle fill stations will be installed on City fire hydrants throughout the city as a way to provide convenient access to drinking water in areas where such access may be limited. Water in the City fire hydrants is potable and safe to drink with routine inspections and tests completed at the time of installation as well as throughout the period of time each station is installed on a hydrant.

Water bottle fill stations are currently located at:

  • Towne Square on the corner of First Street SE and Sixth Avenue SE
  • Second Street SE between South Railway Street SE and Sixth Avenue SE
  • McCutcheon Trail at McCutcheon Drive NW and Basset Crescent NW
  • South Ridge Trail at Stratton Way SE

The pilot program will run through the summer of 2022 and will be evaluated on usage (based on meter readings at each site), community feedback, and cost/benefit analysis.
