Sip Sip Hooray!  

If you’re looking to be clean and green at your next local event, then we’re excited to offer portable water stations to be used at cultural and communityUrban Utilities water filling station events.

We’re all about refill not landfill, so carrying a reusable water bottle is an immediate action you can take to reduce single-use plastic from your event. Our portable water stations are available completely free of charge to eligible events. 

Is your event eligible?

As much as we'd like to have our portable water available to everyone, it's just not possible. So before applying, please make sure your event meets the mandatory criteria.
