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.
Thank you for taking time to express your concern and feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions. Thank you.
