Everyday refreshment and emergency supply: the 85 emergency fountains spread across Zurich ensure access to fresh water even in emergencies. The beautifully shaped bronze drinking fountain, designed by product designer and interior designer Alf Aebersold, was the result of a competition held by Zurich Water in 1974. The hemispherical troughs are still fed by the spring water network, which operates independently of the water supply system.
