WATER ON WHEELS

Frequently Asked Questions

How long has Water on Wheels been delivering water?

Our first delivery was in 2006!  We proudly support Island Folk Fest by providing fresh drinking water. We also give a helping hand to the Vimy Riding Association by watering down their riding ring early in the morning prior to competitions. This makes it more tolerable for the up-and-coming riders to compete without being choked with dust.
