The enclosure’s interior was completely lined with spray-on polyurea by Zuber Polymers as a secondary catchment safety factor in the event of a leak. A floor drain was led to the parking garage below the installation.
A sitting boulder was added to allow an up-close and personal view of the water feature. It is also a great place for enjoying a nice cup of coffee to start the day.
The tricky part was making sure that the pump intake would be deep enough and out far enough so that during the dry season, when the pond is low, the pump intake would still be underwater.
The entire project cost $80,000-plus. With hard work, donated time and money and raised funds in honor of loved ones, the Wall of Veterans and the pavers that surround it now serve as a tribute to veterans of all wars.
