The Promotion of Indoor Drinking Water Fountains at UBC Sané, Salomé; Tran, Amanda; Bebek, Angela; Yu, Evan


The University of British Columbia (UBC) Vancouver campus has been working hard to improve public access to drinking water, reduce the use of bottled water, and encourage healthy beverage consumption habits through their SEEDS (Social Ecological Economic Development Studies) program and their Water Action Plan (Cheng, 2014). For our research group we have partnered with SEEDS in the Siting Indoor Drinking Fountain Signage project to assist with their objectives. In this project, we address the difficulties of locating drinking fountains at UBC and the issues surrounding water consumption, to come up with a list of recommended locations where signage could be installed and be most useful. Disclaimer: “UBC SEEDS provides students with the opportunity to share the findings of their studies, as well as their opinions, conclusions and recommendations with the UBC community. The reader should bear in mind that this is a student project/report and is not an official document of UBC. Furthermore readers should bear in mind that these reports may not reflect the current status of activities at UBC. We urge you to contact the research persons mentioned in a report or the SEEDS Coordinator about the current status of the subject matter of a project/report.”
