Thus, the ceramic granite cladding of the fountain bowl will be dismantled, waterproofing will be carried out and a new cladding will be made. In addition, the granite cladding of vertical surfaces and parapet will be renewed, ”the head of the department said.

They will install decorative lighting in the form of underwater lamps and new mechanical filters for the pumps, replace the drain pump in the caisson. An automated lighting control system, regulation of the water level in the bowl, pumping equipment, valves will also be established.

The existing water supply scheme for the fountain will change: water will circulate through four modules with a separate pump for each group. After the renovation, dynamic light jets with high-speed valves will be emitted from the fountain.
