Waterworks at Cal Anderson Park under repair

Seattle Office of Arts and Culture has contracted with JMS Masonry to repair the public art piece Waterworks in Cal Anderson Park. Doug Hollis’ Waterworks, is the cone shaped fountain and flume in the center of the park. The contractor for the fountain project will mobilize in the park starting in mid-April and will work to complete the project as soon as possible, however, work may extend into this summer.

Scaffolding will be installed around the water feature to provide access for repairs. The granite stones which make up the surface of the cone fountain will be partially removed to allow for the underlying support structure to be repaired, and then the stone surface replaced. In addition, the pump system will be assessed and made operational. Subsequent vault cleaning and testing of the flow system will commence following completion of the work.
