From the Aspen Daily News (Dorothy Atkins):

The specifically designed filling stations are strategically placed around town and provide filtered tap water to the public. They have a traditional water fountain and a spicket to fill bottles, and each has a gauge that determines how much water is used. They currently do not operate during the winter months.

The city kicked off its “Aspen Tap” campaign last year by installing three stations — one near the restrooms at Wagner Park, another at Conner Park, next to City Hall, and the third at the skate park next to the Rio Grande Trail.

Between July and September of last year, people consumed over 700 gallons of water from the station at Conner Park and over 1,000 gallons from the skate park tap.

Good idea.
