Springfield, MO – With precious water reserves plummeting, City officials have agreed to build a fountain which will remind citizens of the importance of water conservation. The fountain will be a symbol of preservation. “We’ll pump 80-thousand gallons of water through the fountain each hour to remind citizens that water conservation should be taken seriously,” said one official.
Citizens are excited to see the water art. Nate Lackeyfin said, “I believe in preserving our natural resources and I’m glad that someone is taking a stand,” while he washed his car repeatedly in his driveway, spraying water into the air in celebration.
Water is becoming so scarce Missouri’s Governor enacted a statewide emergency program to drill for H20. “Springfield’s fountain will be a national symbol during our country’s draught emergency. The low water conditions are expected to last well into autumn; Ozarks citizens will have this beautiful reminder pumping precious water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With Springfield water storage levels at 64.1 percent, they are going to need some inspiration,” said Nixon.
Rachel Trashton said, “Fountains are so beautiful. I’m reminded of fountains when I shower each morning. In fact I try to count each fountain I’ve ever seen before getting out of my shower! Usually only takes me about 75 minutes to recall each one…there was that one in Kansas City, Omaha, Lisbon, Hamburg…”
Members of the community are celebrating the announcement by hosting a mile-long slip n slide as part of the opening of the fountain. “We’ll be spraying hundreds of gallons onto a large sheet of plastic in Jordan Valley Park. Should be fun!” said Nate Milleryate.
