Work being done to bring back fountain to Lachenauer Plaza

The groundwork is being laid for the reconstruction of a Watertown fountain that was all but destroyed over a year ago.

Crews are busy this week putting in a brick foundation in the spot just off Public Square where the fountain once stood in Lachenauer Plaza.

Last fall, an alleged drunk driven, attempting to evade police, slammed into the fountain.

While work is done at the site, the actual fountain is being sandblasted and primed. In fact, officials tell 7 News they are looking at possibly going with different designs or paint schemes before having it put back into place.

The entire project comes at a cost of just over $17,000, which is reportedly being paid through insurance money.
