Topique-eau non potable
3 devices for the non-drinkable water network
By the 19th century, Paris had set up a network for non-drinkable water to be used for watering public gardens and cleaning the streets. This network is in danger of being abandoned because it is shabby and underused. Therefore we should think of new ways to make use of this water, drawn from the Seine and the Ourq canal. Topique-eau non potable suggests three possible ways to use this water:
- a cleaning point for the common areas of apartment buildings
- a cooling point for public places
- a pond which includes a phytopurification system and spigots for collective gardens.
#1 The cleaning point
#2 The cooling point
#3 The pool and chantepleures
