Musical fountains set to adorn Gomti in Lucknow

France's famous musical fountains would be on display on Gomti's banks. By February , giant fountains would be installed inside a lake on Gomti's right bank near La Martiniere Boys College.
The government proposed installation of musical fountains when a small lake was formed near the rubber dam while constructing diaphragm walls along the sides of the river. Irrigation department said since fountains can be installed only in clean water, the idea of musical fountains was mooted.

To keep the water clean, the department would build a filter dam near the lake. The first consignment of fountain has arrived from France while the second delivery is expected by January 26. Engineers from France would also fly in to assemble it. An amphitheatre is being built near the lake with another fountain it its centre. Both the fountains cost about Rs.60 crore. The fountains would create a water wall which would act as a projector for short films.
