Water is on tap at County Hall, Trowbridge, thanks to a partnership initiative with Wiltshire Council.

Visitors to the council offices can refill their bottles at the water station just inside the entrance to the atrium reception area.

Wessex Water provided the new station, directly linked up to plumbing in the building, as part of the partnership bid to encourage people to avoid single-use plastics and promote hydration.

The council said this would be the first of many water stations across Wiltshire in partnership with Wessex Water’s Refill Not Landfill and Hydrate Feel Great initiatives.

Cllr Philip Whitehead, Wiltshire Council Leader, opened the new station alongside Wessex Water’s Head of Community Engagement Kirsty Scarlett today, October 9.

Cllr Whitehead said: “This is a simple answer to helping people stay hydrated while avoiding single-use plastic bottles which create clutter and are bad for the environment. Visitors and staff can use this water station which is straight from the source.

“This is the first of many venues and is a positive step to help the council and county be carbon neutral by 2030.”
