Council has installed two new drinking water refill stations at the following locations:
- The Bathurst Regional Art Gallery / Bathurst Library forecourt on Keppel Street
- Kelso Community Hub at 24 Bonnor Street, Kelso
Visitors and residents can have a drink directly from the water station or fill water bottles with accessible, quality drinking water.
It is estimated that Australians spend more than one billion dollars a year on bottled water. This is despite the fact that we usually have the opportunity to drink quality tap water.
Council has installed drinking water refill stations in a number of locations in order to assist with reducing our reliance on bottled water and ensure that clean drinking water is available in popular recreational areas.
