hydration2When I was abroad on the UCDC program I realized that many of the students were buying bottled water because they did not like the taste of the tap water. I collaborated with a student from UC Riverside to propose a hydration station for the building. A hydration station provides clean water and encourages the use of re-usable water bottles. Various donors have generously provided enough money to fund three hydration stations that will be installed in the UC Washington Center. Hopefully UCSC will also be able to have hydration stations throughout campus in the future.

About dyoducsc

We are a faction of the Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) that will produce simulated water bills that will inform and educate on-campus apartment residents at UC Santa Cruz about their monthly water use and will encourage smarter water-use and conservation through a reduction competition.
