Eight Kansas City Fountains in Desperate Need of Repair

"KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The City of Fountains Foundation is working to raise money to restore eight Kansas City fountains that may shut-off for good if not repaired.

Foundation Board Member Pat O'Neill said some of the city's 48 fountains are between 50 and 100 years old. Some have rusted pipes and cracking walls.

Last year, the foundation started a fundraising campaign called "Wish upon a Fountain." So far it is halfway to it's goal of raising $2.5 million.

Part of the money raised paid for renovations at the Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain. Crews repaired the fountain's lights, plumbing, mechanics, walls and landscaping."
