Water bottle refilling stations increase access to potable water, and can prompt improved hydration and decreased consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages.
- A Bottle Refilling Station is a water supply station created with a unique faucet or dispenser designed specifically for filling water jugs, glasses, or other similar items.
- Bathroom sinks of any kind, and drinking water fountains with a traditional drinking water faucet, do not qualify.
- Water bottle refilling stations do not need to be located at every accessible water fountain/supply as required in strategy 9.1 Universally Accessible Water Supply; instead, they must be located in the quantity of one per floor.
- Qualifying water bottle refilling supplies may include dispensers, stand-alone water coolers, or taps that are connected to the main building water source and are used for drinking.
