Drinking water fountains in Winchester City Centre

Council look to install drinking water fountains in Winchester City Centre

Winchester City Council is set to explore the feasibility of installing public drinking water fountains in the city centre.

As part of the drive to reduce the amount of single use plastic and the resulting litter it often creates, the council are keen to introduce free drinking water fountains to enable residents and visitors to drink or refill bottles whilst in the city. Possible locations include: Abbey Gardens, Middlebrook Street and The Cattlemarket – adding to the existing facility in the tourist information centre on the The Broadway.

The council will also be working with Winchester BID to encourage food and drink premises to consider allowing members of the public to refill their water bottles.

Councillor Jan Warwick, Conservative Portfolio Holder for Environment said:

I am pleased Winchester City Council is taking a leading role in this popular initiative. I am sure our city drinking fountains could help cut down on the use of disposable plastic bottles for the benefit of all our residents and visitors.
