Community Fountain

A central fountain can provide a sense of place, safe water and public art. Your team will partner with a community to design a new artistic central fountain that incorporates public drinking water and the needs of your community partner.  This fountain can be used in multiple spaces or be designed to a specific space, community or theme.

School Drinking Fountain

Students need easy access to sustainable safe drinking water at school, playgrounds and other public spaces. Your team will design a new drinking fountain concept that provides easy access for students, encourages them to choose water and teaches them about this precious resource.  

Emergency Response

Portable water sources are needed for emergencies. Your team will design a drinking water fountain/delivery system that can easily fill reusable containers, be deployed during emergencies and be used in a variety of conditions and locations such as when electricity is unavailable, public water is unusable or the service area is flooded.
