Mobile Drinking Water Trailer
Update: Tap'd In will not be used at 2022 community events.
Tap’d In is a mobile drinking water trailer available for use at public events in York Region. The Tap’d In trailer comes to your event filled with clean, refreshing municipal drinking water.
Water is delivered to guests from:

The trailer also has solar powered lighting for evening events.
In some cases the trailer will need to be filled on site. York Region will co-ordinate with event organizers to arrange for a municipal water connection when applicable.
The Tap’d In mobile drinking water trailer is free for events that meet the eligibility requirements.
