Lake George Fountain “Not A Swimming Pool” Says Parks Director [AUDIO]

Abby Faulkner

 

ST.¬† CLOUD¬† – There has been some confusion surrounding the purpose of the public art piece, resulting in reports of humans and pets wading and bathing in the fountain’s reflecting pool.

In order to combat the trend, the city of St. Cloud recently placed signs telling people not to get into the fountain pool, or let their pets in the water.

St. Cloud Parks director Scott Zlotnick says the fountain is not sanitary and not structurally built for human activity.

Zlotnick says wading or bathing the pool has maintenance consequences too, as the fountain’s filter is not designed to clean human residue.
