Wesleyan does not sell bottled water in all university-controlled locations. Water bottle filling stations, drinking fountains, and water filtration systems are available in nearly every campus building. The Wishing Well, a portable filtered water station, provides water at most outdoor events. The City of Middletown's annual water quality reports indicate that Middletown's water is within compliance for all tested contaminants.
In 2011, Wesleyan replaced high flow toilets, flush valves, faucets, and showerheads with low-flow models, reducing consumption by over 13 million gallons annually, over 50 percent of total water consumption.
