Water On the Go

Water-On-the-Go Fountain

New York City is fortunate to be able to enjoy some of the best drinking water in the nation. During the summer, please join us at one of our portable water on the go fountains to fill up a water bottle, take a sip, or keep your four-legged friend hydrated. We have locations in all five boroughs. Just look for the bright blue tent!

To view fountain locations and times, visit our Events Page. To learn more about New York City drinking water, visit Drinking Water. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to learn more about our activities and programs.

Why Choose NYC Water?

  • It’s Healthy: NYC Water contains zero calories, zero sugar, and zero fat. A typical 12-ounce can of soda has about 150 calories and the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. Sports drinks are sometimes marketed as healthy alternatives but contain as many calories as sugary beverages, and often high levels of sodium.
  • It’s Affordable: NYC Water is a great deal. At approximately one penny per gallon, it is about 1,000 times less expensive than bottled water.
  • It’s Green: Plastic water bottles produced for the United States use 1.5 million barrels of oil per year—enough to power 250,000 homes or 100,000 cars for an entire year. Did you know that it takes more than 3 liters of water to produce each bottled liter of water?
  • It’s Convenient: NYC water is available right from your tap.
