The privately-owned fountain at Park Village is currently turned off due to water leak and pipe corrosion issues. According to the Park Village property management, ShopCore Properties, several steps must be taken before it is in working order again.
Those steps include filling the fountain with non-corrosive City water to help determine where the leak is coming from, repairing the corroded water lines, re-plastering the inside of the fountain and finally sealing the outside masonry. Once the fountain is operational it will continue to be run on City water to avoid the corrosion from the previous well water.
The timeline for the overhaul is still being determined. The City will be working with ShopCore management and the fountain’s new construction contractors to monitor the complete and timely repair.
While the fountain does not represent a safety issue, parents are urged to keep their children away from the fountain until renovations are complete.
“ShopCore appreciates the patience of the community while they work through this repair and are excited to have the fountain back up and running so the community can enjoy every aspect of the property,” said a ShopCore Properties spokesperson in a statement.
