CINCINNATI — Travelers passing through Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) will now have more sustainable water options for staying hydrated during their travels.

CVG installed DropWater stations where passengers can purchase a 100% compostable bottle or fill their own water bottles with still or sugar-free flavored water options such as cucumber, guava and lemonade. The DropWater station also has the option to add caffeine to their water.

Antony Sepi, former Pipeline Director and current Business Coach at HDC, said DropWater was the winner of the water-tech focused accelerator program Pipeline H2O.

“The Greater Cincinnati region has shown that it can compete with any region when it comes to developing disruptive, innovative technologies that are solving real challenges in the sustainability space,” Sepi said. “The Pipeline H2O program was a perfect example of this impact, and the willingness of BigCos, government, and academia to open their arms to innovation.”

There are now two DropWater stations in CVG; one located in Concourse A near Subway/Gate A2 and one in Concourse B near Gate B19.
