Georgetown Waterfront Fountain Shut Off Tuesday

Maintenance issues shut down the water feature in the Georgetown Waterfront Park.

The water fountain at the is waterless Tuesday.

The National Park Service's Rock Creek Park office manages the Georgetown park.

Donald Kirk, the park service facility manager for Rock Creek Park, told Patch that he received a call from his maintenance contractor around 1 p.m. Tuesday informing him of an issue with the fountain.

At this point they are not certain of the cause, but believe that an electrical fuse is to blame, said Kirk. Another park service contractor is en route to investigate.

"It may be up and running tonight," said Kirk. "The worst case scenario, I hope, is tomorrow."
