Electric Fountain Water Features
The Electric Fountain has twelve individual water features, each creating a distinct shape. The water manifolds (supply pipes) that hold the individual nozzles are in an interlocking labyrinth of plumbing on the fountain vault deck. The drawing below (designed by Hobbs Architectural Fountains) is the layout for the new fountain, including the light clusters that emulate the original Darlington lighting system. The only real change from the original fountain manifold layout was to move the vault access hatch from inside the outer spray ring to a location on the southeast corner of the vault. (North is to the right on this drawing.)
