This research utilizes university students to collect data on water bottle refill stations located in residence halls, athletic facilities, and academic buildings across the Stony Brook University campus. Volunteers use an app on their cell phones to collect data including number of times used, water flow, filter status, and maintenance needs. The objectives of this sustainability study are to generate quantitative and qualitative data on the use of the water refill stations to increase efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and determine optimal new locations.
