Turón claimed the spot of the art piece is significant because of the relevance of drinking water in the location and how it connects neighborhoods and community customers,

“The Rio Grande is a lot less than a mile absent from the web page, there is a water canal that travels by way of the unique neighborhoods, and neighbors get the job done together to care for the local community irrigation process,” Turón stated. “The abstract style and design condition brings together ideas of art with science.”
