Paris Is Installing Sparkling Water Fountains All Over the City 

The French capital hopes to have at least one of the fountains in each arrondissement.Paris—the city of love, lights, and… sparkling water fountains? That’s right: Because tap water is so passé, the French capital decided to give their public drinking fountains a carbonated upgrade. The fontaine pétillante, as they’re locally called, have been around since 2010, with eight sparkling fountains located around the city. This past month, however, Paris’s City Hall scaled this project into a full-blown initiative, with the ultimate goal of having at least one carbonated fountain in each of the 20 arrondissements—Parisians, you’ll never have to settle for still water again.
