Water Tower and Fountain Rehabilitation


The main fountain on the Podium is a signature feature of the campus as is the water tower which is not only an architectural landmark, but a functioning 300,000 gallon storage and water pressure facility. As functioning mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components of the campus, they have aged and are in need of total renovation and upgrade. Repair and upgrade of the water tower will likely involve improvements in system condition and efficiency with minor aesthetic improvements to the exterior. The University, however, will study how planned capital work will impact water pressures and how the tower fits into these needs. With regard to the fountain area, new seating, landscaping and lighting will enable users to experience the fountain from a variety of viewpoints and extend the daily and seasonal use of the fountain.
