the idea girl says

interesting I thought this fountain was installed in 1977, it’s a memoriam for Charles E Brooks who passed away in 1977.  Looks like (after googling it) it was installed along the Detroit River on the Canadian Side of Windsor Ontario Canada around 2013?

not sure yet but here’s how they did it with boats, cranes and construction crews.

The Charlie Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain has been installed and presents its light and water show daily from 10am to midnight at Reaume Park/Coventry Gardens, Riverside Drive at Pillette Avenue.

A team of technicians, divers and a crane worked all week to prepare the nozzles and pumps in the only international floating fountain in North America.

The Peace Fountain moves 12,000 gallons of water per minute. There are 150 lights ranging from 500 watts to 1,000 watts that create the water show.

The Charlie Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain was designed by Richard J. Van Seters, Fountain Design Consultant of M.M. Dillon Ltd., and T.W. Szalay, Director of Special projects for Windsor’s Department of Public Works. The fountain is dedicated to the memory of former labour leader Charlie Brooks (1915-1977), an enthusiastic booster of Windsor’s riverfront development.
