Next Friday, metro riders in Mexico City will have clean drinking water available at metro stations across the city.

200 drinking fountains will be available this week, with plans of 400 by the end of 2017, averaging two fountains in each station.

Water will be filtered through a four-filtration system and ultraviolet lights to ensure free and clean drinkable water.

Jorge Gaviño, head of the Collective Transportation System, said “there is a great effort behind this project, because each of the drinkers cost between 30 and 35 thousand pesos, and carry a water tank with an ozonator”.

“The potability will be guaranteed. Water not only comes clean from the grid, but we have four filters and ultraviolet light,” he said.
