Can you drink tap water in Rabat Morocco? The answer to this question is no. The municipal water system, the FSN (Federated National Water Service) runs by contract from Rabat municipality and is serviced by water companies based in the area. This means that the only source of safe drinking water for travelers is through wells, springs, or boreholes.

There are several points you should know about the water supplied by the FSN.
