A water tap is a man-made construction providing access to water, supplied by centralized water distribution system (unlike in case of man_made=water_well, where groundwater is used) and (usually) equipped with a valve, which may be user-accessible or hidden. The tag man_made=water_tap is used for publicly usable water taps, such as those in the cities and graveyards.
Water taps may provide potable and technical water, which can be specified with drinking_water=yes and drinking_water=no. Consider adding also more general amenity=drinking_water in case it is potable water.
- man_made=water_well A man made excavation in the ground to gain water from an aquifer.
- man_made=drinking_fountain Provides a small jet of drinking water.
- natural=spring Water flowing out of the ground. May have a fountain built around it (see Roman Bath in Bath, U.K).
- amenity=water_point, waterway=water_point — the same thing, but for filling fresh water holding tanks with larger amount of water.
