US-TOURISM-REFLECTING POOL-MOON
The Washington Monument, US Capitol and the "Blue" Moon (2nd full moon of the month) are reflected in the newly refurbished Reflecting Pool August 31, 2012 on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The Reflecting Pool reopened August 31, 2012 after a two-year, USD34 million reconstruction. The pool has been reengineered with a circulation and filtration system. Instead of using city drinking water, it draws river water from the nearby Tidal Basin, which will save 20 million gallons of drinking water each year. The pool is shallower ? only 3 feet at its deepest point ? to save water, and its bottom is tinted gray to make the water darker and more reflective of the 555-foot-tall Washington Monument.
