    Having a water bottle filling station at a school will provide a fast fill of water that helps out your thirst and also reduce the amount of plastic bottles waste in the environment. Its very important to stay hydrated, you always have to to get the right amount of water during the day. Without enough water, your body will not be able to perform its highest level, it will also make you feel tired and other symptoms.

    A Lot of student in pocomoke high, including myself doesn't think that the water fountain at the school is good for students to drink. According to pocomoke city annual drinking water quality report, it is safe to drink the water and also meets federal and state requirement. “ i think that the schools water fountain is nasty, it tasted like iron and it sometimes looks yellow, but the gym water fountain is good”.

    Water should always be provided to us. In schools there should always have water fountain or even water bottle for sell. But the water at our school doesn't always suit us, so getting a water bottle filler station would be great for our school. “This should be place in different hall ways, it might cause a mess if students decides to act up”.  

    At the beginning of the school year, students would be provided with a PHS water bottle that they can use to fill at any station. PHS water bottle filler station would be called “hydration station”, that would bring clean, cold water for us students and you also won't have to bend down just to drink water. “Sometimes i'm thirsty and i can't go to the water fountain because it's not good, so i usually just not drink nothing till i get home.  

    This will also help with kids having to always leave class to go get a drink of water. With a water bottle station, you would  fill your bottle between classes and have water during class. “I've read about where there are different brands that provides a water filler station and also clean, cold water for schools and community”.
