The Water-On-The-Go application helps users locate the various drinking water fountains that are opened during the summer for NYC's Water-On-The-Go program. The Water-On-The-Go program brings NYC water to various locations in and around NYC. With the Water-On-The-Go application users can locate and find their way to these various stations over the summer months.
This application has a map which is used to visually display station locations and a calendar that shows when stations are opened. You can also obtain directions to the specified station of your choice. All of this is done within the application without the need to use external applications.
NYC Water doesn't just taste great: It's Healthy: NYC Water helps you maintain a healthy weight because water contains zero calories, zero sugar, and zero fat. A typical 12-ounce can of soda contains about 150 calories and the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. Sports drinks, which are marketed as healthy alternatives, have as many calories as sugary beverages and usually contain high levels of sodium.
It's Affordable: NYC Water is a great deal. At approximately one penny per gallon, it is about 1,000 times less expensive than bottled water.
It's Green: Plastic water bottles produced for the U.S. use 1.5 million barrels of oil a year—enough to power 250,000 homes or 100,000 cars all year. And it takes more than 3 liters of water to produce each bottled liter of water.
It's Convenient: NYC tap water is available right from your tap. DEP's Water-On-the-Go fountains will make tap water easy to get in public places in each of the five boroughs.
