The City of Medicine Hat piloted 10 water bottle fill stations on fire hydrants throughout the City this summer with success. Residents and visitors enjoy sunny hot summers with many outdoor activities and now have access to clean drinking water to stay cool and hydrated while doing so. Each water bottle fill station is designed so that the stream of water is protected to only allow freefall into a water bottle, cup, or bowl. THAT'S INNOVATION, MEDICINE HAT STYLE!
