Indianapolis Fountains Complying With Watering Ban

Even though state property is exempt from Marion County regulations, the fountains will operate for just an hour a day until the ban is lifted.

The four fountains don't have to be shut down, but officials have voluntarily decided to comply with the ban.

The Indiana War Memorials Commission will shut down the four fountains it maintain in downtown Indianapolis in an effort to conserve water in light of the watering ban in effect in Marion County.

Officials said each fountain will only run for approximately one hour per day to maintain water quality.

Shutting down the fountains is a voluntary move on the Commission’s part because the fountains are located on state property, which is exempt from the ban.
