The drinking fountains at the Old Fort are failing, and need to be replaced. We definitely need to replace them before the hot summer months, so that visitors can have access to clean filtered water.
We would like to replace the fountains with new refrigerated wall mounted filtered bottle filling stations that offer a traditional drinking fountain, along with the water bottle filling option.
This offers an eco-friendly and responsible drinking water solution that the Old Fort needs on site for visitors.
It's estimated that 80% of plastic bottles end up in the landfill and are not recycled. Filtered water bottle filling stations serve as an alternative to plastic water bottles through encouraging the use of the fountains in making safe, healthy water free and accessible.
Please help us reach our goal to replace the drinking fountains with safe, filtered cold drinking fountains with the bottle refill feature.
Thank you very much for your support!
