Water for Community Events


Water Buffalo

Greenville Water provides drinking water for outdoor community events held in our service area. We do this as a public service to support the community and share information about tap water.

The Water Buffalo is designed to dispense clean, refreshing tap water into cups or reusable bottles. It’s an environmentally friendly way to serve water at your event!

We can also provide hand wash stations for outdoor events. Our staff will deliver the stations, fill them with water and stock the station with paper towels and soap. We have five available.
