Public Water Refill Stations

We believe that access to clean, public drinking water is essential.  With the help of the Active People Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant we were able to increase the number of water refill stations in the Municipality.  OTF (Ontario Trillium Foundation) is noted beside the fountains that were made possible through this grant.

We have 4 public outdoor water refill stations for filling personal water bottles (up to 2 L in size).  They can be found at:

  • Head Lake Park, 78 Maple Avenue (across from the information Caboose) 
  • Haliburton Highlands Museum, 66 Museum Road (OTF) 
  • West Guildford Community Centre,  1061 Kennisis Lake Road (OTF)
  • Municipal Office, near skate park, 728 Mountain Street, Haliburton (OTF)

There are three indoor water refill stations.  They can be found at:

  • A.J. LaRue Community Centre, 728 Mountain Street
    • One in the lobby, located near the washrooms.
    • One upstairs in the auditorium (OTF)
  • Dysart Branch of the Haliburton County Public Library - 78 Maple Avenue (OTF)

To fill large water containers, visit our two outdoor taps located at:

  • A.J. LaRue Community Centre, 728 Mountain Street
  • West Guilford Community Centre, 1061 Kennisis Lake Road

The water refill stations and outdoor taps are tested and cleaned through direction from the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.
