Cavs Remove Water Fountains from The Q

The Cleveland Cavaliers have removed all water fountains from The Q. 

To get a drink of water at the arena, you must stand in line at a concession stand, where you can get a small courtesy cup of water for free or pay $4 for bottled water.

Team spokesman Tad Carper said the Cavs took out the fountains in November to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses that cause H1N1 flu and other illnesses. He said Friday that with health-related decisions like this one, the team takes advice from the NBA and the International Association of Assembly Managers.
