So much for buying Aussie made... Now Perth Citizens will need a smart card to drink from a public water fountain. This, after sneaking in recycled sewage water for drinking!
"In an Australian first, a water fountain which charges citizens via a smart card and can dish out both still and sparkling refreshment is to be trialled in Perth."
"It is going eliminate bottles and it is reliant on smart card technology," said Perth mayor Lisa Scaffidi.
