Bicentennial fountain spouting off once again

INDIANAPOLIS—After a long wait, the fountain in the centennial plaza at the Indiana Statehouse is spouting once again.

The fountain has been shut off since the winter of 2017, because of a problem with the control panel that worked the lights and the water element. It was originally built as part of the plaza commissioned by then-Gov. Mike Pence for Indiana’s bicentennial in 2016.

The fountain includes jets that shoot water into the air and small square lights that are lit up with different colors. The fountain also had a cascading front, which turns the fountain into a reflecting pool when the jets are turned off.

Earlier in August, Jill Carnell, the chief administrative officer of the Indiana Department of Administration, said the fountain itself cost $1.1 million and was expected to run annually between April 15 to Oct. 15.
