Drinking water fountains serve fresh, potable water around the city. These fountains are installed and maintained by the City and Park Board.
We test the city's drinking water frequently to ensure and maintain a high quality level.

Temporary fountains and handwashing stations
During summer, we connect additional drinking fountains and handwashing stations to our fresh water supply. Each has a bottle filler on the side. Temporary fountains and stations are placed in specific locations that benefit the elderly, very young, and people experiencing homelessness. We remove temporary fountains and handwashing stations in winter to prevent equipment from freezing.
Misting stations are available at:
- Andy Livingstone Park, northwest corner
- Commercial Drive and East 10th Ave, northeast corner

- Granville St and West 10th Ave, northeast corner
