The Office of Sustainability and Facilities Management are working together to increase water efficiency by installing low-flow bathroom fixtures across campus. Most of our water conservation efforts are focused in sustainable building and renovation. To see more click here.

Drink Tap, Not Bottled
Touchless Water Bottle Filling Stations
Use the new water bottle filling stations to fill up your reusable water bottle! Our new touch-free fountain has a sensor which can detect the presence of a bottle and can quickly fill your bottle with filtered, cold water. So keep an eye out and try one out for yourself.

Bottle-Less Water Coolers and Britas
Throughout campus there are numerous water fountains which provide cold, fresh drinking water. If you don't feel comfortable with tap water, consider investing in a Brita Water Filter. They are inexpensive and easy to store in a fridge of any size.
We've also added more water bottle friendly fountains on campus! In La Cava Lower Cafe Eatery, there are two water coolers connected to the tap which provide chilled water with extra carbon & micron filtration to remove 99% of chlorine and any residual lead or bacteria.
The Truth About Tap
Outsmart the bottled water scam!
Approximately 25% to 40 % of all bottled water is just tap water, bottled and sold to you at a higher price. [Source: All About Water: allaboutwater.org]
