NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – New York City DEP commissioner Cas Holloway was out talking about New York City water on Wednesday and promoting the launch of a new program called Water-On-The-Go.

Public water stations will be set up in outdoor spaces throughout the city.

“Most importantly it’s really to give — people want to cool off, they’re thirsty in the summer — but also to make sure that they know that NYC water is some of the healthiest, most affordable, drink that you can have,” said Holloway.

Holloway also pointed out that NYC water is zero calories and goes for a penny a gallon.
