Drinking water could soon be spouting in Orlebar Park and Connaught Square.
The city’s parks and recreation manager received a request from the utility department to place two water fountains in the two locations as a pilot project.
The parks and recreation manager notes that sustainability staff is recommending that the fountains are placed in the two parks based on their close proximity to watermains and also due to their high pedestrian traffic. Following installation, both water fountains will be maintained by parks and recreation.
Yearly operational costs for this pilot project per fountain are expected to be minimal.
