CIVIQ: Problem: outdated drinking troughs fail victorian students.

Primary school in Victoria replaces antiquated drinking water stations.

The teachers and managers at Boronia Heights Primary School, had a problem. Their aging drinking trough was over 50 years old. It desperately needed an upgrade. The outdated design was no longer functional. The school was concerned about the hygiene and quality of the drinking water provided to its students. And the lack of bottle refill options.

Solution: install the Hydrobank drinking water station.

The lack in options to refill a bottle makes it difficult for students to stay hydrated. On top of that, the plain stainless-steel design lacked appeal. It did not engage students. School Business Manager Lori Lundberg recognised the need for an upgrade. After doing her research, she discovered Civiq’s drinking water stations. These units offered several advantages over traditional troughs.
