Statehouse fountain gets long awaited repairs

INDIANAPOLIS—A long-dormant fountain in the plaza at the rear of the Indiana Statehouse will once again spring to life as repairs are currently underway for a mid-August return.

The fountain was originally the centerpiece of the bicentennial plaza built by then-Gov. Mike Pence in 2016.

The fountain includes jets that shoot water into the air and small square multi-colored lights. The fountain also had a cascading front, which made the fountain a reflecting pool when the jets were turned off.

Jill Carnell, chief administrative officer of the Indiana Department of Administration, said that the fountain by itself cost $1.1 million and was expected to run annually from April 15 to Oct. 15. It was only functional in the summer of 2017 and a couple of days in 2016.
