The counter system on the new water bottle filling stations will track the number of bottles saved from the landfill by refilling at the fountain.

The counter system on the new water bottle filling stations will track the number of bottles saved from the landfill by refilling at the fountain.

Two new water fountains were installed that are designed to fill water bottles. These fountains have been used at fitness centers and other public places, and now Sierra has two.

Jose Suarez, head custodian, said that the district plumbing department decided to install two new fountains in each secondary school. He was asked to choose the location for the new fountains.

The fountains were installed in the 700 hallway and near the large gym front entrance. Jose chose these two locations because they are normally supervised by teachers and would benefit the most students. “We have had problems with the volleyball players and the cross country runners making a mess after school when they fill their water bottles. These new fountains should help,” said Suarez.

The district is only going to provide two fountains for the school this year. They are hoping to see if students can take care of them before installing any more.

Maddi Dzengelewski was one of the first students to use the founain near the drama room on Friday. She said she has used them before at other places. “It is a lot easier and faster to fill a water bottle,” said Dzengelewski.

At a cost of $500-$600, Suarez and the Sierra staff are hoping that students will take care of the new fountains.
