We are here to help make choosing tap easy.
That’s why we are helping you enjoy Melbourne’s world-class water through the Choose Tap program.
Through Choose Tap, we work with our community to promote tap water as the most sustainable drink.
Despite being blessed with some of the finest drinking water in the world, Australians are still consuming more bottled water than ever before, creating mountains of plastic waste.
Here are some of the ways you can get involved with Choose Tap:
Permanent hydration stations
To help provide access to free tap water on the go, we work with local councils and community groups to install permanent hydration stations throughout our service area. Check out our map of national refill points, including Choose Tap water fountains and don’t forget to bring a re-usable bottle next time you leave the house.
Mobile water fountains at events
We also offer mobile water fountains to eligible events, to ensure all attendees can remain hydrated at your event. Find out more information.
