A new water fountain map has been created, to help you find drinking water around our UK campuses.
The map shows all the places where staff, students and visitors can easily refill water bottles. By using the fountains, you’ll also be helping to reduce single-use plastic waste on campus — one of the targets of the #WasteNott campaign.
As well as signposting current fountains, we’re in the process of installing several new fountains around the University. Further details will be added to the map when the next phase of installation is complete.
Today’s launch of the fountain map coincides with World Water Day 2019. Find out more about World Water Day at the University of Nottingham.
Gavin Scott, Environment Manager at the University of Nottingham, says:
“In last year’s plastics challenge survey, 98% of respondents pledged to refill drinks bottles instead of using them once, to help reduce the amount of single-use plastic binned on campus.
The new map supports that goal by helping our community locate their nearest sources of drinking water. We hope that this will make a real impact, particularly over the summer months — and would like to thank our community for their continued commitment to the WasteNott campaign.”
