*Free tap water will be available to all during the London 2012 Olympic Games, organisers have confirmed. *
The provision of tap water will vary from venue to venue depending on the type of infrastructure available, which will be reviewed through the planning processes.
As far as possible, events leading to the build-up of 2012 will also offer tap water.
Paul Deighton, Chief Executive of the London Organising Committee, said: “It is our policy to ensure the provision of free drinking water to the public at Games venues”.
UK tap water is among the best in the world. This is the result of sustained investment by water companies to ensure that quality and consistency meet the rigorous standards set by the EU Drinking Water Directive backed by the World Health Organisation.
The most recent annual report from the Drinking Water Inspectorate shows that 99.96% of all tests carried out in England and Wales met the required standards.
