Abstract

The purpose of the study was to assess students' water consumption in the Gallagher Business Building to determine if designated water bottle filling stations will increase reusable water containers. Data was collected to determine the number of disposable water bottles purchased and the current usage of refillable water bottles.

A Kress Revolving Loan Fund application was submitted to fund the installation of two water bottle refilling stations. To date the grant was awarded and installation of the filling stations is being arranged. After installation data on student usage of refillable water bottles will be collected to test the hypothesis that increased convenience for filling water bottles will increase their usage.
