Armidale Community Preschool

Throughout Australia, schools struggle to pro- vide reliable drinking water for their students due to drought and low groundwater supply.

At Armidale Community Preschool in New South Wales, the staff and management committee needed a way to provide their students access to clean, drought-resilient drinking water without tapping already scarce local water resources.

Previously, students had to rely on groundwater dispensed from drinking fountains on campus, which had an unpleasant taste and was unreliable in times of low supply. Recognizing the need for a better, non-extractive drinking water option, Armidale Community Preschool decided to look for a water solution their students would love and didn’t contribute to Australia’s ever-growing drought.
