  3. All applications for use of a Hydration Station will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and will be at the discretion of South East Water.
  4. Events may be charged a $710 (including GST) hire fee to use a Hydration Station. This fee covers delivery, setup and dismantling costs. If payment is not received prior to the event, South East Water may forfeit your booking.

  6. If application for sponsorship for the use of the Hydration Station is successful, the event must provide promotional opportunities and benefits for South East Water, which may include signage, social media, flyers and newsletters. All material carrying South East Water’s logo must be reviewed and approved by our organisation prior to publication. Photographs and evaluation survey must be provided after the completion of the event, failure to provide could impact sponsorship for events in the future.
  7. If an event has used the Hydration Station previously, data collected from that event, (including water usage, location, number of attendees, communication between with the event organiser, promotional opportunities provided and photographs of the Hydration Station in use at the event) will be used to determine whether sponsorship will be provided for the same or similar event in the future.
  8. Hydration Stations will not be available for hire during July due to maintenance.
