Pentagon Memorial Benches

The Pentagon Memorial park is lined with benches and individual water features below each, which represent one of the lives lost on September 11, 2001.

Memorial Water Features

Each stone bench and water feature is marked with the name of the person it represents and their birthday year.

Water Quality Control For The Memorial Water Features

Water quality was the their concern for Delta Fountains, as visitors would be able to come in contact with the water under the benches.

Memorial Lighting for Water Features

Each of the reflecting pool basins beneath the benches are illuminated with underwater fountain lights. The lights are reflected against the benches through the water.

The Pentagon Memorial honors those whose lives were lost on September 11, 2001. The two-acre site includes 184 named memorial benches, one for each victim, positioned according to an age line marked with the victims’ birth years. A shallow lighted pool of flowing water is positioned under each memorial bench.

Pentagon Memorial Water Feature Challenges

To monitor and manage the water level, pressure and flow of the individual reflecting pools, a custom controller was needed that could be integrated with existing management systems. In addition, the project required a chemical feed system and a method to sanitize the water. All of the work on the memorial had strict deadlines and a non-negotiable completion date, due to the collaboration and joint effort between many participating architects, contractors and vendors.

 

Pentagon Memorial Park Solutions

Delta Fountains provided the electrical controls and panels to house a Programmable Logic Controller, which was designed and programmed to integrate with the Pentagon’s building management system. The design of the controller allowed for monitoring and control of all the functions of the lighted reflecting pools. We supplied all display and filter pumps and water quality components, including an intricate chemical feed system, custom fabricated gauge panels, and an Ultra Violet Sanitation System – all within the established time frames.
