Water Cart Booking Request Form
Tap Into Sustainability at your next community event with the CRD's mobile drinking water cart.  Offer your participants, volunteers and staff clean, safe, cold and delicious local drinking water with this refill station.

Please note: Your event must be within the Capital Regional District (CRD), connected to the Sooke Lake Reservoir water supply and be accessible to a municipal potable water source and power source. Event times must be a minimum of four (4) hours.

The water cart will be staffed with CRD personnel at all times. There are no rental costs for the water cart and CRD brings this outreach tool to your event free of any registration or event fees.

Please complete and submit the following applicationat least two (2) months before your event date.  Once your application has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted. If available, a site inspection will be scheduled to identify the water cart location, water and power source. A water sample will be collected and tested after this meeting prior to your event. Should the sample not pass, although rare, the water cart will not be available. You may also print the application form to complete and fax to 250.360.3079 or email to abell@crd.bc.ca
