When I asked for a water supply system to help my pets, I was denied
Aquafina Water Supply system to provide drinking water to pets at its Pawtucket, Rhode Island, water supply plant was supposed to be up and running by early February, but that plan is being delayed by concerns over a lack of funding and other issues.
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Protection announced Tuesday that it is postponing the project due to a lack.
“It has been determined that funding and support from the Governor is necessary to complete the project and continue to operate Aquafina at the Pawtrowall facility,” the department said in a statement.
It also said that it was working with the state Department of Water Resources to get the project approved.
The state’s Department of Emergency Management said it will provide an update once it has more information.
According to Aquafinas website, the company has been providing water to dogs and cats since it was founded in 1989.
The company has a contract with the Department of Health to provide the drinking water for dogs and cat owners in the state.
A total of 3,400 dogs and 1,600 cats currently have access to drinking water at Aquafinas facilities.
