Sydney Water will again tap into the iconic Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, lining the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk.
Sculpture by the Sea runs from Thursday 18
October until Sunday 4 November 2012.As part of the exhibition, Sydney Water will be serving tap™ from its water trailers, every weekend from two locations – Marks Park (Tamarama) and the back of Tamarama Beach (the grassy area between the café and playground).
Sydney Water Managing Director Kevin Young said Sydney Water would be promoting sustainability and the quality of our tap water.
“We encourage all visitors to bring their water bottles so we can refill them for you to keep hydrated for what is often a hot time of the year as we move into summer.
“We will have environmentally friendly cups for those that do not have their own bottles.
“Last year we served more than 50,000 cups of water and refilled about 30,000 bottles,” Mr Young said.
Mr Young said Sydney Water is the Founding Sponsor and Supporting Partner of Sculpture by the Sea and has been involved since the exhibition started and our partnership is now in its 16th year.
“We have always supported the environmental sculpture and this year as part of our agreement, we’ve given a subsidy to artist GhostNets Australia for its ‘Crocodile’ sculpture, which has an important environmental message,” Mr Young said.
GhostNets’ Crocodile was created out of fishing nets. The sculpture was created to raise the awareness of the issue of ghost nets within the wider community. Ghost nets are fishing nets that are lost or abandoned at sea and can cause harm to marine life.
