Smart Taps are bottle-filling stations with drinking water fountains made available to cities free of charge, making the safe, clean and healthy, municipal drinking water supply more accessible.
By drinking from a Smart Tap and using a refillable, reusable bottle, everyone can do his or her part for our environment. It’s a water revolution!
The Team at Smart Tap
We’re an eclectic group. With way too many years of experience. Titans of industry. Media gurus. A water afficionado. From outdoor media to beverages to museums, to non-governmental agencies, we’ve worked at them. We’ve run companies, have built brands, and bring all this insight and experience to bear at Smart Tap. With Smart Tap, we aim to put an imprint on our world. For the better. Do well by doing good as we say.
“I am so pleased that you made it possible for us to be the first, I think that masses of people who care about the planet are waiting for this. We are all thrilled to have the first one in place, and looking forward to introducing them to the Prospect Park world and beyond… It’s thrilling to see the real desire to use Smart Tap. I love the variety of bottles in the clip — think if more people knew ST was available and had their own bottles at hand, etc. clearly we will need more than one at busy locations. Thank you for making this possible.”
– Emily Lloyd: President/Administrator, Prospect Park Alliance

“Hooray for smart tap in prospect park!” Tweeted @tinkergarten. “Even easier and more Eco friendly to #playoutdoors with you here.”
“Check out this cool new spot to grab a drink and/or refill your water bottle in Prospect Park! A FIPS tipster spotted this station off if Center Drive near the Nethermead, and said the pressure was great for refilling a large water bottle. No more trying to awkwardly tilt your bottle at one of those low-pressure water fountains. Hope we get more of these around the park.”
