Water Bottle Refilling Stations

Water Bottle Refilling Station

Throughout the main campus, there are over 40 water bottle refilling stations located at UT Dallas. These stations use an sensor to refill your bottles with clean, chilled water. These stations provide opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to refill their water bottles while preventing the addition of another plastic bottle into the waste stream. The ticker number located on the top of the stations identify the total number of bottles filled by utilizing the station. As of January 2018, over 2 million plastic bottles have been prevented from entering the waste stream since inception. If you are in a building that does not currently have a water bottle refilling station, and are interested in acquiring one, please contact the Sustainability Coordinator for more information.

Bathrooms

With the new drive to building efficient, green, and/or LEED [Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design] certified buildings at UT Dallas, bathrooms are of interest for water conservation efforts. Our Facilities Management team has taken the initiative to maximize water savings and conservation whenever possible when renovating bathrooms and/or replacing bathroom fixtures such as toilets, urinals, and faucets. This may include, but is not limited to, low-flush toilets and urinals, dual-flush toilets, and low-flow faucets.

Irrigation

UT Dallas is a campus that is comprised of buildings, greenspace, and natural landscaping features that includes many diverse species of flora and fauna. Through efficient and strategically planned watering, our Facilities Management team ensures that our campus landscape is healthy and visually appealing. Efficiency in campus irrigation minimizes water loss and waste. At any time, if you see a broken sprinkler on-campus, please contact us.
