The Taipei Water Department says selected night markets and commercial quarters will provide the public with drinking water directly from taps on weekends.

The drinking water fountains will begin quenching thirsts from tomorrow.

The water department said drinking water fountains have been installed at the Ximending pedestrian zone, Raohe Night Market, Ningxia Night Market, Shilin Night Market and Yongkang tourist street.

The city government says the quality of the water provided will be guaranteed and will be checked regularly.

The public will also be allowed to check the water quality, using their mobile phones by scanning a bar-code.
