The Freep is reminding everyone that two of downtown's most well-known fountains are dry. At Hart Plaza, the iconic Horace E. Dodge and Son Memorial Fountain is still damaged from a nasty bout of vandalism sustained earlier this year. Simultaneously, the fountains of GM Plaza behind the RenCen have been shut off by the building's management company to perform maintenance. While it seems unlikely that the GM Plaza fountains will be down for an extended period of time, Hart Plaza is another story. Vandals did over $1M in damage to the park in January, up to $400,000 of that damage was to the fountain itself.
