I just plain like to build fountains. More precisely, I like to turn them on and see them work as the customer wanted.  Each fountain is like a small monument that we get to build and occasionally drive by and say, “yeah, we built that”.  The construction of fountains is unique because it involves so many trade disciplines and considerations from constructability to aesthetics. This trade appeals to my passion for problem-solving and my life-long involvement with moving water.” -Doug Clarke, President
