Text of plaque:

Romona Falls
 Greg Conyne and Wendy Armstrong

For this sculpture/fountain the artists reclaimed used but familiar objects from a number of sources and combined them in an entirely new and different context.  Old equipment from Clark Public Utilities, C-Tran and the City of Vancouver offer clues to the past expressed in a somewhat nonsensical way.

The rough, rusted and used appearance works well with the elements of the theme: Conserve Reuse Recycle.  Seasonal rainwater from the roof of the adjacent building is captured to provide a portion of the falling water.  The name "Ramona Falls" recalling a well known site on the slopes of Mount Hood.
