Take it From the TAP! (TAP!) encourages the community to choose local tap water as their first drink of choice. TAP! is about creating change through educating our community about where our water comes from, water quality, and the economic, health, and environmental benefits of choosing tap water.
By choosing tap water you can:
Make a healthy choice

Take it From the TAP! Education Program
Santa Rosa Water offers in classroom Take it From the TAP! education. Our lesson plan educates students on the safety as well as the health, environmental and cost saving benefits of choosing tap water.

Santa Rosa Water has been installing water bottle fill stations throughout the community to promote tap water while reducing plastic waste. Water bottle fill stations are similar to drinking fountains but include an overhead filling system, allowing people to fill reusable water bottles easily. Refilling a reusable water bottle multiple times daily is much less expensive than buying plastic bottled water, so don't forget your reusable water bottle when you are out and about around town.

Tap Water on the Go!
Santa Rosa Water’s Hydration Station is the first of its kind in Sonoma County to provide high-quality and refreshing tap water on-the-go. The Hydration Station can transport 200 gallons of Santa Rosa tap water or can be connected directly to our municipal water supply to meet additional drinking water demands.
The Hydration Station attends City Sponsored events and visits Santa Rosa Schools to promote healthy hydration and education about our high-quality drinking water supply.
