Water Fountains on Canadian Campuses: Where Have They Gone?



    OTTAWA, Sept. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Water fountains are disappearing on
university and college campuses across Canada according to a new Polaris
Institute report.
    The report, "Campus Water Fountains: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,"
uncovers a series of trends related to public drinking water access at
Canadian universities and colleges:

    
      -  The Good - assesses the kind of reinvestment in public tap water
         infrastructure currently happening on campuses.

      -  The Bad - four Canadian Universities were found to have either no
         fountains in new buildings or very limited access.

      -  The Ugly - buildings codes across Canada allow universities to
         design and construct institutions without water fountains.
