(Dec 4/13) There should be available water fountains in HSL or the surrounding area. For students studying in the library for long periods of time this is very inconvenient. The water fountain on the first floor has been out of service for a very long time, and has shown no improvement. Every other library on campus has a water fountain on each floor.
I share your frustration about the water fountain in the Health Sciences Library. Unfortunately, there is an issue with the plumbing in this area and the water is unsafe for drinking. This is a larger issue with the plumbing in the wall behind the water fountain. Building management and the Health and Safety office have not been able to find a workable solution. Until that happens, the fountain will remain closed.
The water in the library washrooms is safe for drinking. The accessible washrooms on both the upper and lower levels have faucets that can accommodate large water bottles. There are also drinking water taps available in the hospital cafeteria.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions. Thank you. (Dec 6/13)
