In the Downtown Phoenix area of Arizona, the Human Services Campus hands out around 1000 water bottles a day to the homeless. This is not sustainable for the community, and needs to be changed. However, an attempt to distribute reusable bottles to the community would require the means to wash, and mantain the sanitation of these bottles, where ease of use and time efficiency are important.
To provide water in a sustainable way to the community, the proposed solution is to create washing stations that allow for an easy to use experience, that is fast and manageable for the homeless to use whenever they need it. So far, research on sanitation standards and county regulations has been completed, as well as the early phases of drafting designs for the stations. The designs are centered on the ability to be used without any directions, and in places where the homeless can use them safely.
