Monthly Science: Water Bottle Refill History

This year’s Northern Star Quilt Guild show in the O’Neill Center at WCSU gave me an opportunity to update last year’s data points, although not quite in the way I expected.

The overview:

The left display is rotting out:

Gym water bottle refill station B - left
Gym water bottle refill station B – left

The center display seems undamaged:

Gym water bottle refill station B - center
Gym water bottle refill station B – center

The right display took a direct hit:

Gym water bottle refill station B - right
Gym water bottle refill station B – right

So the middle station refilled 3025 = 10460 – 7435 bottles, roughly eight bottles a day, every day, for a year. Seems like a lot of refilling, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of the other watering hole last year, but here’s what it looks like now:

Left:

Center:

Right:

Now, it’s entirely possible I have the two stations reversed, in which case I have numbers for all three displays:

  • Left = 242 = 4758 – 4516
  • Center = 633 = 8068 – 7435
  • Right = 800 = 9689 – 8889

Does a bottle or two a day, every day, for a year, seem more reasonable? Hard to say, so, with a bit of luck, we’ll have more data next year.

For science!
