Long description: C​ambridge water comes from Fresh Pond to our homes, schools, and parks. It’s a clean, safe, and healthy choice. Water bottle refill stations in public places across the city encourage people to drink more water and use fewer disposable plastic bottles.

    Hi Ethan,

    The winning projects will be included in the City’s FY2017 Capital Budget. FY2017 runs from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017, so the water bottle refill stations will be installed during that time. Thank you for supporting PB!

    Best,

    Awesome news, I’m very excited. When can we expect the new bottle filling stations to be installed?
