February 12, 2015 | FOUREENTH DAY – FOUNTAIN REPAIRSLeave your thoughts | Categorised in: Fountain Works
Today was the fourteenth day of the repairs to the fountain. Here is what was done, followed by some photos:
Because of all the rain, the fountain pool collected a fair amount of rainwater, as the pumps and plumbing have been removed. City Parks Department continued draining the water using a couple small pumps, each one connected to a garden hose. They did not want to have the rainwater collect in the fountain vault where the plumbing goes, since it has been disconnected. There is still about an inch of water remaining.
City staff will be off until Tuesday, so I will continue updating then. Happy Valentine’s Day (Saturday) everyone!
We will have to keep the fountain drained until the repairs are completed. Thank you for your patience, and for your help in making this happen. Please follow my daily progress reports.
