Fountain Retrofits

Year: 2011

Grant Amount: $7,500

Many water fountains around UT have been retrofitted to have a spout specifically for filling up water bottles. This encourages water bottle use and discourages buying plastic bottled water. This work benefits UT by reduces our ecological footprint, but also by making the free water bottles that various colleges give out more useful and visible. The fountains funded by this project were simple “gooseneck” fillers that can be installed on the back of existing fountains and connected to the municipal cold water line.

You can find these spouts on 39 water fountains on campus including these buildings: ACE, ART, BIO, BME, CAL, CBA, ECJ, EPS, ETC, FAC, GAR, GOL, JGB, MAI, MBB, NMS, PAI, PCL, RLM, SEA, SUT, UTC, WAG, WCH, WEL.
