Where the Water Goes
Where the Water Goes

The water in these jars was collected from three sites in the Washington, D.C area. On the left, the water was collected from the Upper Potomac River, north of the aqueduct that supplies the city with water. The nine center jars contain water from each of the nine sinks in the public restrooms of the United States Supreme Court. On the right, the jar is filled with water from the Lower Potomac River, downstream from the city's primary wastewater treatment facility. Each jar is sandblasted with the path the water has traveled to reach its collection site.
