London encouraged to drink regular tap water

In an effort to promote awareness of tap water as a viable option over bottled water businesses, MPs, and community groups across London will receive a total of ten thousand water carafes designed by the Thames Water.
The Houses of Parliament will also receive some water carafes which chief executive of Thames Water, David Owns, said he hopes will make MPs think about drinking tap water on a frequent basis.
Even the Queen and Gordon Brown the Prime Minister will get some water carafes.
Owens said that since Thames Water is the watchdog of water quality they are able to offer the best carafes available on the market. In an effort to display their efforts they have designed the London On Top campaign is to reassure consumers that while dining in the town it is permissible to ask for tap water.
Additionally, Owens added that they have had a positive reaction from restaurant locations that are already using Tap Top.
Currently, Heathrow Sheraton, Imperial College Catering, The Cavendish, Aldo Zilli, and Radcliffes Le Brasseur already use the Tap Top carafes.
It is predicted that summer temps in the city will rise by about three degrees over the next forty years while rainwater is expected to decrease by 18% which will cause droughts in the future since the population of the city is also expected to increase.
To address the problem London Mayor Boris Johnson compiled a report that includes 12 proposals that will address the problem with techniques such as better sewage systems and the installation of water meters in all London homes by 2015.
