Choose if you want sparkling water out of some Paris fountains or regular water. These special fountains are located in Reuilly Gardens (12th arrondissement), Eau de Paris (19 rue Neuve-Tobliac 13th arrondissement) and the André Citroën entrance (quai André Citroën 15th arrondissement).
A converted park chalet houses the system. The original carbonation system uses normal Paris water. The fresh water (about 12 degrees celcius) passes through chilling pipes and mixes with the CO2. The water flows into your bottle at about 7 degrees.
The Paris water system is working with the City of Paris to offer the carbonated water free to everyone. The City is planning on multiplying the fountains around Paris. No date has been given for completion of the project.
However, three more are planned between now and Summer 2014.
