  1. Tap water

    Tap water is potable water supplied to a tap inside the household or workplace. It is a principal component of "outdoor plumbing", which became available in suburban areas of the developed world during the last half of the 19th century, and common during the mid-20th century. The application of technologies involved in providing clean water to homes, businesses and public buildings is a major subfield of sanitary engineering. Calling potable water "tap water" distinguishes it from the other main types of potable water, such as water from rainwater-collecting cisterns, from village pumps, or from streams, rivers, or lakes.
