New motion-activated filtered water stations are being implemented across Coppell High School’s campus as a senior gift from the graduating class of 2017. The water fountains have promoted students bringing reusable water bottles to school.

 

“One of the main goals of senior gifts is to figure out what could be added in the building to improve the campus,” associate principal Sean Bagley said. “The [water fountains] are being placed outside of all the bathrooms and they’re slowly being implemented.”

 

The water fountains are being installed now that renovations of school bathrooms have been completed.

 

“A lot of my friends are starting to bring their own water bottles to school,” senior William Kendall said. “I don’t buy plastic water bottles anymore and I see more people doing that too.”

 

The new water stations have saved the use of many plastic bottles since their implementation.

 

“I’ve been using the new water stations a lot,” junior Faith Wall said. “I like how well-filtered they are.”

 

The filter display featured on the stations explains the cleanliness of the water. They show the colors green, yellow and red depending on the status of the water filter, displaying green as the purest and red as the least filtered.

 

“I have seen a lot of people using the [water stations],” junior Shipra Selvan said. “I’ve been using them too, and I think they’ve made a big difference in decreasing the use of plastic water bottles on campus.”
