“The County and City appreciate the support of the community, especially Watermill Express, who will be providing water to the event participants,” said Maricopa County’s Commuter Transportation Program Manager Pat Soria. “Through their service, we will have a ‘green’ water event—eliminating plastic bottles which take years to breakdown in the landfill and offering participants clean and refreshing water to fill up their own water containers.  Every event organizer should seriously think about the environmental impact of bottled water and look for ways to reduce waste.”
