Company relaunches water bottle kiosks at WVU

Feb. 19, 2013 @ 08:11 AM

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Evive Station is relaunching its reusable water-bottle cleaning and refill stations at West Virginia University.

The relaunch features newly designed bottles and new machines that have a quick-fill area allowing students to fill up without getting their bottle cleaned.

Evive Station’s initial launch last year had 4,000 bottles and refilling stations inside the Mountainlair and Rec Center. The relaunch with 7,000 bottles will have filling stations across WVU’s campus, including the Engineering building and the College of Business and Economics building.

Evive Station CEO Tom Petrini tells The Dominion Post that the company also plans to install the machines in the coming months at Carnegie Mellon and Slippery Rock universities and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s headquarters.
