Illinois Revolutionizes Hydration: Mandatory Water Bottle Filling Stations


Share post:

CHICAGO – Public buildings in Illinois will soon be required to install water bottle filling stations starting January 1st. The legislation, approved by both the state House and Senate, targets buildings with over 100 occupants or those exceeding 5,000 square feet. 

This groundbreaking move complements the existing law mandating water fountains in public buildings. By encouraging the use of refillable bottles, the initiative aims to reduce plastic waste while promoting hydration. 

Similar efforts across the country have gained traction, emphasizing the state’s commitment to sustainability. Illinois residents can anticipate easy access to clean drinking water and a greener future.
