News release – the City of Barrie
The City of Barrie Water Operations branch is going on the road this summer and bringing free drinking water to a beach near you.
Residents, visitors, and summer camp participants are invited to fill up their reusable bottles with Barrie tap water for free at the City’s water trailer this summer.
The water trailer will be at Tyndale Beach or Centennial Beach every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. until August 31, 2023 (weather permitting and subject to staff availability).
The water trailer holds enough tap water to fill 2,000 reusable water bottles.
Barrie is one of the few municipalities in Ontario that gets its water from both groundwater and surface water. On average, approximately 37 million litres of water are produced each day in Barrie. Water quality is monitored 24/7 and thousands of samples are collected annually.
