The Hydrachill water refilling station, located on Level D of the Hugh Owen Library, gives all our library users access to free chilled water and also dispenses reusable bottles for those who do not already have a drinks bottle. You can refill it as many times as you want. Refilling your water bottles reduces the need to purchase bottled water. This simple change can have a huge impact on the environment.
