Mayor Ashley Swearengin and other city officials on Thursday celebrated a sound they had not heard for some time – water gushing out of the Cobb Fountain at City Hall.
The fountain was shut down in the summer of 2009 and has remained inactive since. But now that the city has its water reclamation plant operating, workers were able to connect the fountain to use recycled water.
The fountain is named after Van Buren and Minerva Cobb, who were Fresno pioneers.
Also on hand were City Council members and City Manager Bruce Rudd.
