Little water wonder comes to Kapunda
An outdoor drinking water fountain that
automatically monitors its water use and
lets you know when it needs to be cleaned,
is now operating in Kapunda.
The fountain is one of five set up across
regional parts of the state, providing a free
alternative to bottled water for the local
community and people passing through the
This installation is also the first of SA
Water’s fountains to feature artwork created
by Aboriginal artist Paul Herzich, which
depicts waterholes specific to Aboriginal
groups from across South Australia.
SA Water’s General Manager of
Communications and Engagement, Ms Anna
Jackson said the fountain helps show an
appreciation for the connection Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islanders have with the
land and water.
“Including these special designs on the
Kapunda fountain is part of our commitment
to reconciliation, and is just one of the ways
we’re demonstrating this in our work with
communities around the state,” Anna said.
“We’ve also learnt from the Light Regional
Council, who have worked with the local
Aboriginal community, the name Kapunda is
believed to be taken from cappieoonda, which
is an Aboriginal phrase meaning ‘jumping
The fountain is connected to SA Water’s
supply network, which distributes drinking
water to homes and businesses in the region.
“The water this fountain produces is the
same safe, clean water that flows from your
tap,” Anna said.
“The fountain has a more modern design
with the inclusion of a ‘water window’
allowing easy filling of a reusable bottle, and
a foot pedal-operated in-ground dog bowl
which lowers and fills with water for single
use, ensuring adequate drainage and clean
water every time.
“The fountain’s water use can also be
remotely monitored by the local council,
generate subsequent cleaning and
maintenance schedules, and comes with a
solar lighting system for illumination at
“On top of this, it can produce
environmental, health and cost saving
reports, with information such as how many
plastic bottles were saved from landfill by
choosing to either take a drink directly or
fill up a reusable bottle with water from the
“There are clear environmental benefits of
choosing tap over bottled water, but it’s also
better for your hip pocket - more than 90 per
cent of the cost of a bottle of water actually
comes from its lid, bottle and label.”
Light Regional Counil Mayor Bill O’Brien and SA Water District Leader,
Mr Lyn Sullivan at the fountain.
