Shedd Aquarium :: Chicago, Illinois

Aquascape has installed three water features at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, the first of which is located near the outdoor terrace by Lake Michigan. An 80-foot waterfall was built to replicate a watershed that can be replenished with rainwater from the property. The self-sustaining water feature provides a riparian zone, which is instrumental in water quality for surface run-off.

Another waterfall was created at the museum’s grand entrance. Constructed of Missouri moss rock, the expansive set of waterfalls greets visitors upon arrival. Waterfalls cascade into a 10,000 gallon sub-surface reservoir before recirculating up and over the falls to repeat the journey.

A third, smaller Pondless Waterfall is located near an outdoor pavilion at the Shedd Aquarium.
