Hydro Mains Where Does Water Flow?

This room houses the hydro systems, the pumps and valves that control the flow of water throughout our building. These are large pipes and pumps, 10-12 feet tall and occupying the most of the room they are installed in.

I found the forms to be quite sculptural, though I know they exist for function only.

Massive and amazing, I can imagine the force that will drive water from these pumps!
All our water passes through these pipes and valves, from the Town of Boone, to our plumbing, including the geothermal well systems. This is the heart beat that circulates water through out our campus.

Remarkable forms indeed.... Both of these rooms are secure on the maintenance level. It will be a rare opportunity to be able to see this part of our building.
