IS THIRSTING FOR IT!
As temperatures rise, hydration becomes more important. But rather than buying a single-use bottle of water, schools and businesses now have the opportunity to install hydration stations and get a rebate from BWP.
That way, everyone can stay hydrated with clean and accessible water while cutting back on single-use plastic bottles.
For a limited time, BWP is providing rebates to commercial customers with an active BWP water account located in Disadvantaged Communities (DAC) for the purchase and installation of a hydration station. Rebates are available for up to $1,500 for the purchase of the water bottle filling station and $1,000 for its installation.
single-use plastic water bottles could be removed from the waste stream if everyone in Burbank switched to using reusable water bottles!
According to the California Environmental Protection Agency, DACs are the most pollution-burdened and vulnerable communities in the state, based on a quantitative method to evaluate multiple pollution sources and stressors, and vulnerability to pollution.
If you aren’t sure if your business is located in a DAC, you can email the BWP Conservation team at BWPConservation@burbankca.gov to confirm your eligibility for the Hydration Station program.
Health experts recommend drinking eight 8-oz. glasses of water daily. But when you’re out of the house, access to clean and accessible water can be tricky. Sure, there are convenience stores on many street corners. But buying a single-use plastic water bottle means you have to dispose of it.
Installing a hydration station in a school or business can be a step forward on two fronts: personal health and environmental protection.
Millions of plastic water bottles could be removed from Burbank’s waste stream if there was wider adoption of reusable water bottles.
Hydration stations are fast, easy-to-use, and can refill water bottles of all shapes and sizes. Many airports have them. Now, your local gym, coffee shop, and school can have one too, if they are located in a DAC area!
