The Smart Card bulk water dispensing system at the Stampede Grounds is ready for public use, says the City of Williams Lake.

The station is located next to the sani-station. The user will pre-purchase credits for bulk water on a reusable card at the front desk at city hall.  Users can then go to the bulk water station at any time and swipe the card to access water. The system will allow users to dispense the amount of water desired and give a remaining card balance. When the card credits have been exhausted, users can take their card back to City Hall and repeat the process of purchasing additional credits.

Cards are free, but a fee of $12 will be charged for lost or stolen cards. The cost of water is one cent per litre.
