More water refill stations
Filling up drink water bottles should get easier following the installation of two new water refill stations on Hardy's Bay Foreshore and Trafalgar Playground, Woy Woy.
The project started in early November and was expected to be completed by the end of February.
The new fixtures complemented stations already established at Woy Woy, Umina, Ocean Beach and Ettalong Beach.
Each unit has multiple taps for drinking from, with refill dispensers on each side.
The station at Hardy's Bay will also keep canine companions hydrated with attached dog water bowls.
Council administrator Mr Ian Reynolds said the council was proud to provide a convenient resource to the community.
"Council is ensuring visitors and residents have unlimited access to free filtered water when they visit popular areas around the Central Coast," said Mr Reynolds.
"I'm proud that we can offer this service to the community and expand on the existing water stations that were installed in 2014.
"Our water refill stations will continue to help residents and visitors avoid outlaying millions of dollars on purchasing bottled water, they will also help reduce the amount of unnecessary landfill in our region."
