Whether we choose to participate in sporting events, live music, fairs and fetes or whatever other reasons we can find to enjoy the great outdoors, we inevitably need to stay hydrated. And as the numbers of water fountains and accessible taps have dwindled, the waste created at these events have steadily increased.
Fortunately, a lot of water service providers and other environmentally conscious organisations have invested in water trailers and hydration stations to help event organisers reduce waste by providing water on tap.
Below is a list of hydration stations and links to the providers they can be booked through.
Queensland Urban Utilities
Servicing the greater Brisbane region, the QUU hydration station can be booked by completing a sponsorship application.
Healthy Land and Water
Also based in the Brisbane region, Healthy Land and Water has a number of portable water refill stations for hire. They all require a mains water tap as the refill station cannot store water. More information is available here.
The Water Swallow operates from Burleigh Heads but they are prepared to travel to make your event sustainable. Read more and book on their website.
Based in Maroochydore and servicing the Sunshine Coast region, Unitywater’s latest addition to their fleet is a very funky looking retro caravan – great for events. Book online.
