The Fountain Bridge

Here's a pretty neat way of turning a ho-hum bridge into an amazing tourist attraction: turn it into a fountain!

The fountains at the Banpo Bridge were installed on September ninth and have since become a major tourist attraction. It has nearly 10 thousand nozzles ( more exactly 9, 380 ) on either side of the bridge that shoots out 190 tons of water every minute. According to the Seoul mayor, Oh Se-Hoon, the fountain bridge would help acknowledge Seoul as an eco-friendly destination amassing more tourists.

Umm perhaps the effect of the water spray picking up tons of carbon (and other pollutants) and dropping it in the river may be what they are striving for.
