Atlanta Airport installs water refilling stations

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has installed two water refilling stations in an effort to encourage passengers to use non-plastic containers or reuse plastic bottles.

Although passengers cannot take filled water bottles through the security checkpoint, empty bottles in carry-on luggage are allowed and can be refilled with fresh, filtered water from the stations at the touch of a button.

“These water refilling stations are designed to allow recyclable materials like water bottles to be reused, which in turn reduces waste generated at the airport,” said Michael Cheyne, director of asset management and sustainability. "We will monitor use of the water refilling stations and determine if they can be successfully implemented in other parts of the airport.”

The water refilling stations are easily retrofitted onto existing water fountains. The two that have been installed were provided by Oasis International, the current water fountain vendor, as part of a demonstration project with Atlanta Airlines Terminal Corporation (AATC) and the Airport.

The water refilling stations are located at the water fountains across from gate A19 on Concourse A and at the water fountains near the security checkpoint on Concourse T.
