Percentage of visitors drinking water at 12 sites in San Joaquin Valley in the Agua4All Program, 2014–2016. A nonsignificant increase in consumption occurred among people drinking water at sites with water stations plus promotional activities that site staff developed and conducted compared with sites with water stations and limited promotional support (signage, reusable water bottles provided by study) (21.16% vs 5.13%, P= .14). Baseline data were collected from November 18, 2014 through December 16, 2014; time 1 data were collected from October 26, 2015 through January 22, 2016; time 2 data were collected from February 5, 2016 through April 23, 2016; time 3 data were collected from May 19, 2016 through June 15, 2016. Mean ambient temperature did not significantly differ between community A and community B at any time point.
|Percentage of People Drinking Water at Study Sites||Community A||Community B|
|Baseline: before interventions||5.35||8.13|
|Time 1: After station installation in community A||12.41||7.27|
|Time 2: After limited promotion in community A ; station installation in community B||12.12||10.44|
|Time 3: After site-led promotion in community A; limited promotion in community B||26.51||13.26|
