Water Jet (Jet d'Eau)

Quai Gustave-Ador, 1207 Genève, Switzerland

One of the largest fountain in the world is located at the Lake Geneva and is one of the city's most famous landmarks. The first Jet d'Eau was installed in 1886. The present Jet d'Eau was built in 1951. 500 litres (132 gallons) of water per second are jetted to an altitude of 140 metres (459 feet) by two 500 kW pumps, operating at 2,400 V, consuming over one megawatt of electricity. Since 2003, the fountain has operated during the day all year round, except in case of frost and particularly strong wind.
