Brampton - Residents looking for a healthy, environmentally responsible beverage choice while on-the-go, now have 400 new options. The Region of Peel and Blue W have partnered to increase the availability of municipal tap water available throughout Peel.

Blue W is a non-profit network of shops, restaurants and businesses where you can refill a reusable bottle with tap water for free. Since the program began in March, 400 businesses have signed up to join the network and this number continues to grow. Residents can search for locations in their community by visiting peeltapwater.ca or looking for the Blue W label in participating business windows.

“During Drinking Water Awareness Week, we want to help residents overcome the barriers of drinking tap water when away from home,” says Mark Schiller, Executive Director of Water and Wastewater for the Region of Peel. “The partnership with Blue W greatly increases the availability of tap water outside the home. We are excited about the number of businesses who have joined the Blue W network and we encourage you to get a reusable bottle and fill up today.”

Businesses interested in signing up for the Blue W network can visit bluew.org. Registration is free.

Blue W is a national network of businesses, so tap water locations are not limited to Peel Region. When travelling within the GTA or nation-wide, check bluew.org for available locations outside of Peel.

“This initiative is part of a campaign to raise awareness of the quality of Peel tap water. We invite residents to learn about the benefits of choosing tap water and how it is treated, tested and distributed to your home, school and business,” adds Schiller.

For more information, visit peeltapwater.ca or call 905-791-7800, ext. 4409.
