Thanks for that. Now it's clear for me.

+1 from me for drinking_water:refill_scheme

I found three national programs (with maps) that I think are related to this tag.

Dear All,

I have amended the proposal with the tag and a simplified example.

The proposal is definitely more KISS.

drinking_water:refill_scheme = <yes/no>

Best regards,

Thank you.

Paul's response did clear up my reservations on the idea.

The webpage makes it clear there is a sticker that is verifiable without going in a asking. Not sure if that was mentioned before or if I had simply missed it.

This meets the gold osm standard of Verifable.

Now I know there is something to look out for I can start looking when I'm out.

Its a shame the website doesn't have location, I do not use Google play, but I guess thats why you want to put them into OSM.

As its a UK scheme, discussion on the talk-gb list would be more focussed and you will reach more mappers who are able to survey and contribute.
