Hydration Stations

Meeting Time


Project Description

The Hydration Stations Project is addressing the issue of Downtown Phoenix’s unhoused
population’s disproportionately low accessibility to clean and safe drinking water. The issue is a
matter of public health and sustainability, as it is linked to an increased risk of dehydration, poor
hygiene, and other heat-related illnesses as well as excessive waste of single-use plastic. The
Hydrations Stations team is currently working with the Human Services Campus in Downtown
Phoenix to design a water-dispensing and reusable bottle-sanitizing mechanism, which will be
made accessible to the unhoused population. Several designs are in the working, all focusing on
the sanitization aspect of the project and hygiene education.
