Should there be more and functioning water fountains?

Rated 5/5 (8 people). Log in to rate.

What the idea is about:

I want there to be more water fountains around campus and those that are already there to work better.


Why have you proposed it?

Because I am often thirsty after attending an intellectually stimulating lecture / seminar.

Seriously though, often I find myself on campus with my own water bottle (as there is no bottled water on campus - which I believe to be great!) and really want to fill it up. I'd much rather fill it up at a water fountain than in the toilet.

Also I reckon more people would then drink water, bring their own bottles and avoid soft drinks.
