Broken drinking fountains problematic at football games
On any given Saturday, the University of Colorado's Folsom Field can hold over 53 thousand fans. In a city that can easily see temperatures reach the mid 80s during the fall, keeping hydrated is important. There is one problem, the drinking fountains do not work.
The drinking fountain located just across from gate 12 at Folsom Field has not worked all season. To get to the next free source of water you would have to walk past seven gates and pass 22 concession stands.
Security personnel working at the games know of the broken fountain, yet nine weeks into the season it still has not been fixed. CU student Craig Campos said, "It's pretty ridiculous to have a football game with 50 thousand people and the water fountains don't work."
According to the university, the water may be shut off to that particular drinking fountain because of pipe issues at the stadium.
Until the university fixes the broken fountain, fans are forced to use the one located on the south east side of the stadium. They can also purchase water from vendors at a cost of $3.50 per bottle.
