Fountains are peculiar objects: We associate them with nature even though they are typically entirely artificial and man-made (unless you are living in Iceland of course).

Recently however, a fountain that wasn't planned for emerged in California's San Fernando Valley. An urban water pipe carrying purified recycled water, used for irrigation and industrial purpose, began leaking. The rupture sent water gushing in an immense column that towered over the roof of a nearby business.

Thousands of gallons went down the sewer before the next natural fountain was closed down more than three hours later.
