Crews Testing 9/11 Memorial Waterfalls Ahead Of Site’s Official Opening
LISTEN: WCBS 880′s Peter Haskell reports
The waterfalls at the 9/11 memorial are the two largest man-made waterfalls in the country, but memorial president Joe Daniels says it’s not the size of the waterfalls, it’s the sound.
“That white noise separation that the waterfall creates I think is a signifier that you’re in a very special place,” said Daniels.
“To get it right, to make sure it works, to make sure they can be turned on and off,” said Daniels. ”That of course, there’s no leaks which fortunately there are no leaks at all.”
The waterfalls are located in the voids marking the footprints of the Twin Towers.
