The fountain was installed as part of public improvements during the 1984 Olympics

ECHO PARK ––  After suffering from “pump problems” for several months, the fountain in the middle of Echo Park Lake is back to its old self, firing three jets of water high into the sky. Last December, The Eastsider reported that the fountain  had  been running only half as high as normal, with one the geysers resembling water gushing out of a broken fire hydrant. A Recreation and Parks Department spokeswoman said maintenance crews were looking at how to deal with the faulty pump. Now, all appears well. Thanks to Stephen Roullier for tipping us off about the fountain fix.
