Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to tour the construction site at ground zero.  Joe from Delta Fountains showed me and a couple coworkers around the inner workings of the national 911 memorial fountains set to open on the decenial of 9/11 this year.  The fountains are vast; nearly 200′ square and 50′ deep… each.  That’s a lot of water.
