Meridian Hill Park Fountain Update: “We hope to get the cascades up and running this week.”

Been getting tons of queries about the Meridian Hill Park fountain status – here’s an update from the National Park Service:

“We had to turn off the fountain over the weekend while we worked to repair a water main pipe that burst last week.

We also discovered an electronic issue is causing the fountain not to function properly – it isn’t regulating the incoming water quite right, and the automatic mechanism that shuts the pump down isn’t working, so if we let the fountain run unattended, there’s a chance it could pump itself dry.

The good news is, the pump is running properly, and we can separate the upper section from the lower cascades, so we’ve turned off the upper section and are running the lower section during the day while we work on fixing the issue. You will probably see National Park Service staff and the fountain specialists we’ve brought in working on the fountain if you’re in the park. We hope to get the cascades up and running this week.
