Visit MWRA's Free Drinking Water Fountain
at Events this Spring Through Fall
Mass. Governor Charlie Baker

The MWRA fountain is back! Our next fountain event will be the Harvard EAC Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 22 at Harvard University Science Center Plaza, 1 Oxford St., Cambridge, MA, from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

New events will be posted on this page all season long. Follow us on Twitter for updates.

Keep an eye out for MWRA's roving water fountain this summer and fall. The fountain provides free chilled drinking water to public event-goers in Boston and other MWRA service communities.

Just bring your own bottle or cup and fill it at the fountain for free, or try drinking from one of the old-fashioned bubblers. Either way, the water is fresh, local and safe, and you don't have to spend extra money on bottled water or worry about throwing away an empty container.

MWRA's water comes from the pristine and protected Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs in Central Massachusetts. It is treated according to strict state and federal standards and tested every step of the way to your tap.

If you are planning a public event within the MWRA service area and would like to book our free fountain, please email or call Joshua Das, MWRA (617) 788-4822.
