Winnipeg is known for its cold winters, but it also has hot summers. When the temperature rises, staying hydrated and cool is essential for your health and well-being. That’s why the City of Winnipeg has launched a pilot project to install three hydration stations in different locations across the city.

These stations provide free and easy access to clean drinking water for anyone who needs it. Whether you’re walking, biking, working or playing outdoors, you can fill up your water bottle at any time with the push of a button.

Hydration stations are devices that are connected to fire hydrants and have a bottle-filling spout. They are designed to provide a continuous supply of water without the need for refilling. They are also safe and sanitary, as they prevent direct contact between the user and the water source. In case of an emergency, fire crews can quickly access the water supply by shutting off the hydrant’s valve, connecting their hoses and reopening the valve.

The City of Winnipeg has installed three hydration stations as part of a pilot project. They are located at:

  • Central Park (near 406 Edmonton Street)
  • Selkirk Avenue at Powers Street (near 469 Selkirk Avenue at the Bell Tower)
  • Broadway Neighbourhood Centre (near 185 Young Street)

These locations were selected based on need and past experience. The City of Winnipeg recognizes that some residents, especially the unsheltered population, may have more difficulty accessing clean water. The hydration stations address some of that critical need, while also serving anyone who may find themselves overheated and out of water on a hot day.

The hydration stations are available throughout the summer and will be removed prior to freeze up. The City of Winnipeg will be evaluating this pilot project and may expand it in future years.
