How to Map

amenity=drinking_water

This tag value should be used on nodes Node that shows the source of a potable water that humans can drink from. Generally, this feature is small and located in urban environments. They may be commonly found near toilet restrooms, on school campuses, or in shopping malls. Tag bottle=yes if it offers an easy way to fill a portable water container.

Temperature aditional tags

Alternative Tags

If the feature is a water tap then use man_made=water_tap. The tag drinking_water=* is used as a indication whether a physical feature provides safe drinking water or potable water for consumption. When mapping with this tag it has a fine level of granularity, it is preferable to mark the individual water sources as a amenity=drinking_water.

For example when tagging a natural=spring that has potable water for use, tag the spring with drinking_water=yes.
