Let Choose Tap Choose You!

Applications are now open for our Choose Tap sponsorship program, where local schools, clubs and community organisations within City West Water’s service area can apply for Choose Tap drink bottles or a Choose Tap drinking water refill station.

Melbourne is lucky enough to have some of the best drinking water in the world.

The Choose Tap program promotes the benefits of choosing tap water over sugary drinks, which can reduce health issues like obesity and diabetes, and looks to support all residents within the City West Water service area to make healthier choices for their overall wellbeing.

The program also encourages the reduction of waste from single-use water bottles, and highlights the immense cost savings from choosing tap water over the bottled drop.

To apply, please request an application form by emailing Applications close 24 November 2017.

Successful applicants will be notified by phone or writing and will be published on our website on the 7 December 2017.
