If you haven’t had enough water with all of the rain over the past few days, head down to Washington Street at the corner of Prospect Street today for a little refresher. The New York Department of Environmental Protection has set up water bottle refill stations all over the city, including right here in our neighborhood, for their “Water-on-the-Go” program.
The New York DEP says, “Get your fill of New York City’s great-tasting, award-winning tap water all summer long! DEP is partnering with City agencies and other local organizations to help New Yorkers stay hydrated and healthy this summer by setting up NYC Water-On-the-Go fountains at public plazas, greenmarkets and parks from July Fourth until Labor Day.”
With less than two weeks left until Labor Day, you only have two chances left (after today) to get a taste from Water-on-the-Go in Brooklyn Heights. NYC Water will be at the Borough Hall Green Market on August 31st, and at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6 on September 5th.
