City Drunk (Fourth in a Series)

The water fountain outside the gym at Bellevue Community College.
Temperature: Room temperature. Score: 3
Stream: High. Strong. Full. Fat. Real arc. Too bad the stream wasn’t anywhere near cold. Score: 8
Taste: Slightly tinny. Score: 4
Hum: I liked the strong white noise whoosh, but it seemed thin without the electric buzz underneath it that I want from an indoor fountain. Score: 5
Style: It’s a small-to-medium silver sink jutting out of the wall. There’s a square high silver back. The tall, spoon-shaped spout was a distinctive touch. And there’s a good-looking, wide lever on the right side of the sink. It didn’t offer much resistance, though. Score: 7
Comments: Good-looking fountain with a high, fat stream. I wish the stream had been cold.
Final Score: 5.4 out of possible 10.
Previously in Drunk: The water fountain at the Stranger; the outdoor water fountain by the tennis courts at Volunteer Park; and the water fountain outside the gym at Seattle Centeral Community College.
