Summer 2009 we began the task of getting the horse watering trough on Main Street working again. Some local volunteers helped to dig up and replace the water pump, lift off the top to clean out the drains and spouts, clean out the bowl (It had been used in previous summers to hold flowers), and install a timer.
Then we began working on the second fountain at the intersection of the North Haven Rd. and High Street. Both fountains were originally fed from town water and later redesigned with a holding tank that would allow the water to be recycled. This fountain was also cleaned and outfitted with a timer. We also installed a float in the water tank so if the water became too low the pump would shut off (much like a toilet works.)
Merry Boone did the beautiful gardening around the base of both fountains. Thank you, Merry!
