Circular Quay East NSW, Australia (2012)

Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) has placed a number of SFA’s stylish and iconic Arqua Stations along the foreshore of Circular Quay East.

The Arqua Station is a complete system that provides fresh tap or filtered water to public spaces. First launched in 2008, the public drinking fountain and water-refill pole was the result of a collaboration with environmental group Do Something!, in order to reduce the impact of disposable plastic bottles on overall landfill.

The innovative fountain is designed without a basin, so that litter is not collected (causing blockage) and residual water trickles easily down a sculptural blade. The Arqua Fountain is paired with the Arqua Pole, a refill facility that provides tap or filtered water to passers-by.

A special edition Arqua Station in stainless steel was designed for Circular Quay East. The installation of Arqua Stations is part of an SHFA initiative to encourage a bottle-free environment, and to accommodate for the tourist industry with the provision of fresh drinking water.
