Times are tough for the UC system, but that is not stopping officials from spending a bundle on bottled water.

A report says UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley have spent about $2 million in recent years on those big jugs for watercoolers.

Critics question the spending, considering the system's massive budget cuts and fee hikes. They also point out that both cities boast some of the nation's highest quality drinking water.

San Francisco City Hall has banned bottled water.
