Sounds of Water Fountain

Sounds of Water is a multi-functional water feature and a metaphor for the mountains and earth—the sources of water—at the Turtle Bay Arboretum in Redding, CA.


The primary uses of water are represented as three systems stemming from a spring -- agriculture, industry and domestic water. Information about each of these systems is carved into the stones and concrete. Water bubbles, sprays and gurgles through the system and then discharged into a wetland through which the waters are recycled.
