Check It Out! Canadian Park Turns Stormwater into Art

Sherbourne Common — part of Waterfront Toronto — is the first Canadian park to incorporate a neighborhood-wide stormwater treatment facility. The facility is integrated with an artistic display: a fountain that releases treated stormwater from 9-m towers. At night, the motion-activated lights illuminate the falling water. A mesh-veil behind the water will allow ice patterns to form in the winter. The treated stormwater flows through a 240-m-long channel to Lake Ontario. Check here for pictures and more information.
