Water fountains on Scottish Government estate: EIR release

Published: 25 Jan 2018

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

FOI reference: FOI/18/00185
Date received: 9 January 2018
Date responded: 23 January 2018

Information requested

The street address - or if not possible, as precise a location as is possible - for all fountains (whether those are drinking fountains, ornamental or otherwise, and whether they are working or non-working) owned, managed, maintained or operated by the yourselves.


The Scottish Government does not have responsibility for any water fountains outside of its properties. However, water coolers are located in Scottish Government buildings. I have attached a list of these and the addresses of the buildings.

You may wish to contact Local Authorities to determine whether they have any public water fountains.
