The new Columbia River water feature at the Waterfront Vancouver will close to the public this morning for maintenance.
From 8 a.m. to noon, staff from Vancouver Parks and Recreation will replace the ultraviolet lights that aid in water purification. Additionally, the water filter will be updated to support the filtration system’s self-cleaning function.
“While this scheduled maintenance is unrelated to the white deposits that recently formed on the black granite, the water feature closure will provide opportunity for the Parks and Recreation janitorial service to explore different approaches to address that issue, as well,” a press release from Parks and Recreation stated.
The water feature is expected to reopen to the public immediately following the work.
