Drinking Water Dispensers in Secondary Schools and Leisure Centres

Prevention for Local Authorities

Donegal County Council has provided water dispensers for five secondary schools and three leisure centres along with awareness campaigns. Before and after waste and litter audits were carried out to measure the impact of the initiative.

Following on from this initial project, Donegal County Council has continued with this work, with 12 schools across the county now having water refill stations.

Donegal County Council has been involved in the preparation of a new guide for providing easy access to free water refill points, to try to change how water is consumed when people are out and about – a simple, positive climate action. This guide was developed by LAPN and a number of local authorities, including Donegal County Council.
