Gippsland Water installs new drinking fountains in Warragul and Trafalgar
Gippsland Water and Baw Baw Shire Council have partnered to promote tap water as the drink of choice.
Gippsland Water managing director Sarah Cumming said new drinking fountains outside the West Gippsland Arts Centre in Warragul and the Turra Pavillion in Trafalgar will keep visitors, sports players and patrons hydrated. "We're so pleased to give locals a healthy choice by providing access to fresh and free drinking water at these busy venues. Our tap water tastes great, is good for you, and better for the environment than store-bought water." Ms Cumming said.
