Water dispensers in community centres – Galway city

Prevention for Local Authorities

In 2019, Galway City Council, through their LAPN project, installed water dispensers in a number of community centres across the City. The buildings included are used by sports clubs and various other organisations, with a high footfall, and involve wall-mounted bottle filling stations with in-built counters. The main aim is to  reduce the volume of plastic bottles being generated. Bi-lingual posters have been used to further promote the units.

Additional units will be rolled-out in other public buildings in 2021 when Covid-19 restrictions are eased.
