How will I stay hydrated if I cannot buy bottles of water?

There are numerous locations around the island where you can refill your water bottle, with additional filling stations planned: https://www.nantucket-ma.gov/1371/Water-Stations. Additionally, only water in a single-use plastic or non-recyclable container of a liter or less is banned in this bylaw. Local businesses have already found alternative containers for drinking water made from other materials. Using a reusable water is preferable in order to minimize waste from single-use items, as well as reduce carbon emissions associated with production and transportation of single-use items.
