In the first trial, Hydrachills will be installed at Hammersmith bus station and at the Tower Bridge museum by Thames Water, reports The Guardian. The machines can fill bottles of up to 500ml with chilled water for a small charge, with all proceeds donated to Waste Watch, a charity working to change the way people use natural resources.
If London’s water stations find favour with the 400,000 visitors who annually pass through the two sites, the scheme may be extended to underground, bus and railway stations across London and the southeast before the 2012 Olympics.
