Bulk Water Station
Bulk water is sold at 925 Kerper Court. Prior to receiving water you must first come down and pick up a card to activate the bulk water. Please call at least one day in advance to get your water card made and activated at no charge you are only charged for the product when used. Please leave time for training on the water system when the card is picked up.
