Refreshing pilot project by the City aims to provide drinking water through a different source

By CityNews Staff

A new pilot project is aiming to keep citizens refreshed and hydrated, through a common street fixture.

The City of Ottawa recently installed its first hydrant drinking water fountain located on Somerset Street West.

According to a release, the fountain will be there for two weeks to gauge community interest and feedback before it's rotated to different locations across the city.

A few municipal election candidates shared their support about the pilot project on social media. 

Kanata-South councillor candidate Rouba Fattal tweeted support for the initiative in her ward and said there were many times she and her husband had to return home because there was no nearby water fountains for her kids to use.
