Mobile water fountains

Did you know...

  •  A litre of bottled water costs the same as 9,000 glasses of tap water?
  • There is the risk that there could be more plastic in the sea (by weight) than fish by 2050?

At City West Water we want everyone to know the health benefits of staying hydrated, the environmental impact of single use plastic bottles and believe drinking water shouldn't cost the earth.

That's why we are pleased to provide free mobile water fountains for community events like charity gatherings or sports club events in our service area across Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melbourne (north of the Yarra River), Moonee Valley, Wyndham, Yarra and parts of Melton and Hume.

Our mobile water fountains come in two different sizes (small and large) and are mounted on a trailer.

Our mobile water fountains are free to eligible not-for-profit organisations

Not surprisingly though, our mobile water fountains are very popular. We get lots of applications and unfortunately can't accept them all.
