If you'd like to request the Water Wagon for your community event, please take a look at our FAQ page. The Water Wagon is considered an in-kind sponsorship, as Madison Water Utility does incur costs to maintain, set up and staff the Wagon. In exchange for our bringing the Water Wagon to events, Madison Water Utility must be included as an event sponsor on all event marketing materials.
