New Water Refill Stations

​The City of Canterbury Bankstown has partnered with Sydney Water to install eight water refill stations across the City in a bid to make filtered tap water more accessible.

The water refill stations will be introduced in high pedestrian areas and parks, which are used for sport, walking, jogging, cycling or picnicking. These locations include: 

  • Beaman Park, Earlwood; 
  • Lees Park, Ashbury;
  • Abel Reserve, Revesby;
  • Kelso Park South, Panania;
  • Wiley Park Reserve, Wiley Park;
  • Riverwood Wetlands, Riverwood;
  • Roberts Park, Greenacre; and
  • Garrison Point Reserve/Lake Gillawarna, Georges Hall.

The co-branded stations will have multiple refill points, a wheelchair-accessible drinking fountain, a filtered water unit, a dog drinking bowl and an in-built water metre.

Mayor, Khal Asfour, said there were several reasons why Council and Sydney Water had partnered on such an important initiative.

"Providing easy access to high quality tap water gives adults and children a healthy alternative to sugary drinks when they’re out and about," Mayor Asfour said.

"It’s an added bonus that these stations will be free to use, so it’s definitely affordable for everyone."

Mayor Asfour said the initiative was also environmentally sustainable.

"These water stations will help reduce the environmental impact of drinking bottled water by decreasing litter and the number of plastic bottles going to landfill," Mayor Asfour said.

"At the moment, only one third of plastic bottles get recycled and, if sent to landfill, can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade."

Sydney Water’s Senior Marketing Advisor, Donna Lewis, said Sydney already had some of the best drinking water in the world.

"The availability of these water stations will help the family budgets of local residents by providing free water rather than them purchasing bottled water," she said.
