BELLINGHAM, Wash. Bottled water will no longer be sold or distributed at Western Washington University starting in April.

A campus group called Students for Sustainable Water had worked for several years to make this happen.

Carolyn Bowie is a member of the group.

She says they’ve worked with the school to give everyone access to tap water, as regular bottled water is phased out of the vending machines.

She says it is about promoting sustainability and water as a public resource.

Western is now the largest public or private college in the state to end the sale of bottled water on campus.
