Event: Ignite Phoenix 3 @ TCA
Event Date: February 25th, 2009

My presentation would advocate, with passion, that we need to add more public fountains and innovative water features to our walkable environment. I will advocate that fountains, often considered water-wasteful, are what could make Phoenix more livable, comfortable, and interesting. I will show examples from Phoenix and other cities. This idea, and my presentation, will spark creativity and get people talking about water in Phoenix.
