Johnson County Community College

Hydration stationThe Student Sustainability Committee appropriated a portion of the Sustainability Initiative Fund in the Fall and Spring of 2010 for the purchase and installation of four Hydration Stations for the JCCC Campus. These Stations allow students, staff, and faculty to refill reusable water bottles with filtered water. The committee’s primary interest in these Stations was to try to reduce the amount of plastic water bottles that are used on our campus. These Stations provide a convenient alternative to purchased, “disposable” water bottles that save students money and reduces our environmental impact.

The students also created a sign to post above the Stations to explain some of the benefits of using them vs. bottled water. You can see it pictured below.
