East Alton-Wood River High School installed a new water bottle filling station today as part of a conservation initiative through the school's Green Schools Program.  EAWR senior Brenden Allen authored the application for the funding through the Madison County Green Schools Program and secured the Green Seed Environmental Grant.  EAWR Green School Coordinator, Sarah Jones, oversaw the entire process that started in September 2016 and witnessed the installation of the first of two water bottle filling stations on campus.  The Madison County Planning and Development Committee made the funds available early this year for the project.
