Huntsville, AL

Placement of the collector tank in a small confined plaza demanded custom plumbing while hitting the civil inverts of the sewer utilities.

Water Feature Design Solutions

The Huntsville Bicentennial Interactive Fountain has 20 discharge points and performs at a minimum combined pumping rate of 210 GPM at 60 feet TDH. The pop jet discharge sumps have bronze grates with stainless steel vandal proof fasteners, and have the capability of being controlled individually and independently of each other and can actuate up to ten times per second. They also include a ramping feature that allows operation at a display height of 0-8 feet while maintaining a maximum velocity within the Department of Health standards to insure safety of the patrons.

The system is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that has the capability of producing infinite display patterns. The PLC is networked via an ethernet module that allows for remote monitoring and interaction with the control system for diagnostic purposes. Changes to the logic code can also be accomplished from a remote location as well. Each custom fabricated discharge sump houses a 12 volt, 50watt wet/dry light for illumination.

Pump and filtration equipment are housed in an 8-foot by 8-foot subterranean equipment vault. The water quality system monitors both ORP and Ph, and uses liquid chlorine to control the microbiological contaminants and CO2 is used to regulate the proper Ph that assist the chlorine’s effectiveness in oxidizing the pathogens.
