Smart Water Fountain

I'm thinking of creating a water fountain for a school or a company that when you walk up to it, it can automatically start dispensing about 250ml of water to the employee or student. This would be possible by rfid scanner built into the water fountain which collaborates with the employee's id or student id. If the user would require more water, then they would pass their id over the sensor. I also want to add the feature of a database which records the amount of water a user would drink, and email or sms them via bluetooth encouraging them to drink more water based on how much they would drink. Added to this is a component which checks the amount of water that would be dispensed so that a message can be sent to the maintenance department informing them that the filter needs changing.
It therefore means that only students or employees would have access to the water fountain. If a visitor is in the building or school I'm saying they should have a visitor pass which would have the technology built into that card which would give them access to the water fountain.

What do you think?
