GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) — Visitors thirsting for an option to make sure they can stay hydrated on the go now have an eco-friendly answer at their fingertips in one South Carolina city.

A partnership between city officials, the Greenwood Commissioners of Public Works, Fujifilm and Upstate Forever, a Greenville-based conservation nonprofit, have teamed to install two water fountains and bottle refilling stations at the Uptown Market and along Oak Avenue in Greenwood.

The Index-Journal reports the $6,823 project split responsibilities among the four entities. City crews will take care of labor and installation; CPW will connect the water lines; Fujifilm is paying for the stations and Upstate Forever is offering in-kind support and coordination.
