The Circle collects stormwater from the surrounding streetscapes where it is filtered for excess debris.

Ultra violet light energy helps destroy micro-organisms without using harmful chemicals before it is pumped up through the Circle’s “bog” plants. These plants also help to clean the water by filtering excess sediments and absorb toxins in the water.

Like ancient Roman aqueducts, gravity moves the water through four bog pools where it eventually terminates into the fountain turbulence pool. Here ,it can be enjoyed by the public as a water feature.
