Eau de Paris (Paris Water) is the publicly owned company responsible for the public water supply and waste water collection for the city of Paris.

History[edit]

The company was created in 2008 after a ballot initiative from then Mayor Bertrand Delanoë. The city's water was then substantially managed by two private companies (Veolia and Suez) which the municipal government bought out.[1]

Operations[edit]

The company distributes 563,000 m³ of drinking water a day.[2] In 2010 the company began installing drinking fountains dispensing fizzy water in the city.[3]
