Hydration Station Request
EKU currently has 21 filtered water bottle refilling stations located across campus. These stations have prevented 1,239,466 plastic bottles from entering landfills!
EKU Facilities Services installs only Elkay EZH20 Bottle Filling Stations (LZSG8WSSK). These stations cost approximately $1,500 while the filters cost of approximately $80 each. Departments may request the installation of "Hydration Stations" if they are able to do the following:
- Fund the initial cost of the equipment during installation.
- Fund annual filter replacement on the unit (or as needed).
- Contact EKU Facilities to request needed filter replacement.
In order to request the installation of a Hydration Station in your building, please submit a RCF (request for change of facilities) through the EKU Facilities work order system, Footprints.
*Please note, not all water fountains can be converted into Hydration Stations. Facilities Services will review each request and evaluate feasibility of installation.
