Water refill station (1)
There were eight different stations in use across 10 hydrant locations throughout the week in uptown Charlotte. The program averaged about 4 stations in use each day. They were used at free speech parades, the Labor Day event: Carolinafest and on the Designated Parade Route throughout the week. Delegate were encouraged to refill their water bottles…They have been used in large events before and the City used past experiences to handle them during the DNC. They were attached to hydrants but Utilities staff says they were not a safety hazard.
Stations at Parks were managed by the Mecklenburg County Parks and Rec Department.
