Facts

  • Centennial Fountain commemmorates the 100th anniversary of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Chicago, and is located near the site of the public agency's most historic achievement, the reversal of the flow of the Chicago River.
  • The fountain consists of two major parts: a semicurcular waterfall and basin, and an enormous water arch which shoots across the Chicago River during warm months at hourly intervals (the first 10 minutes of each hour).
