Artesian Well Petone

If you go for a drive around  Petone foreshore you will see hordes of people filling plastic containers with water from a public artestian well.

The water is supposed to be some of the purest water in the world.

The Council has gone way beyond just knocking up a well - they have created a practical work of art - which is simply stunning.

Click here for the map - however I wish wikimapia didnt try and pump in so many ads!

I love how the Council has created something that provides (for free) - world class water - from the local environment - and encapsulated in tastful and artful structures.

Perhaps this should be part of an urban foraging map!
