WA­TER re­fill sta­tions will be in­stalled in pub­lic spa­ces around the Gold Coast ahead of the Com­mon­wealth Games.

Mayor Tom Tate said the ini­tia­tive was part of the City’s Choose Tap pro­gram to im­prove the vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence and re­duce the num­ber of dis­carded bot­tles.

“We have very high qual­ity tap wa­ter that ex­ceeds Aus­tralian stan­dards and we want to en­sure lo­cals and vis­i­tors have the op­tion to re-fill their wa­ter bot­tles with free wa­ter,” he said.

“When peo­ple come for the Games, we want to en­sure they have ac­cess to wa­ter in pub­lic places.”
