Waterford Greenway – water bottle refill stationsPrevention for Local Authorities
Waterford City & County Council has installed water stations along the Waterford Greenway at four locations – Abbeyside, Ballylynch Cross, Kilmacthomas Station and Bilberry – these are at either end of the Greenway and at two points in the middle. These public water-bottle refill stations enable walkers and cyclists to refill water bottles instead of using and disposing of plastic bottles along the way. With almost 250,000 people using the Greenway in its first 10 months alone, these water stations have the potential to prevent a significant number of single use plastic bottles.
This initiative was implemented using LAPN funding. A newspaper article on the initiative can be seen here.
