Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley was joined Thursday by Boston Park and Recreation Commissioner Antonia Pollak and Daniel H. Whitman, founder of GLOBALTAP, for the unveiling of a “state-of-the-art” public water filling station at the corner of the Jamaicaway and Perkins Street in Jamaica Plain, city officials said in a statement.

“The innovative heavy-duty steel water filling station was donated to the city by GLOBALTAP, which worked with the parks department and Councilor O’Malley to locate the fountain at Jamaica Pond,” the statement said. “Councilor O’Malley is working to expand the number of public ‘tap stations’ in Boston, which allow residents to fill their own re-usable containers. Also pictured is Councilor O’Malley’s nephew, Kieran Conroy, who joined his uncle at the event.”
