Bottled Water Policy – Reminders

submitted by

Since May 2017, Augsburg has been slowly implementing its Bottled Water Policy, beginning with eliminating bottled water from on-campus catering, no longer reimbursing purchases of bottled water, and removing bottled water from vending machines. At the same time, we’re working to increase access to water through filling stations and free water bottles in the Campus Cupboard.

As you’re planning for events, please remember that bottled water purchases are not allowed through expense reports, P-Cards, Staples, petty cash, and invoices.

If you have questions or would like support finding alternatives to bottled water for your department, check out the Environmental Stewardship website below or reach out to We are happy to help brainstorm ideas as we move towards loving our local water! And please share your own creative solutions so we can celebrate together!
