All Wet

Mickey Mouse and Goofy lend a hand re-filling Paradise Bay at Disney's California Adventure which has been dry for several months as Disney Imagineers installed nearly an acre of metal, wiring, nozzles and gadgets which will create "World of Color," an exciting new nighttime water show that brings Disney animation to life with powerful fountains and amazing projection.  The Disneyland Resort was recently honored with the state of California's highest environmental award for its water conservation efforts.  When emptying the lagoon, Disneyland worked with the Orange County Water District to send the water through its state-of-the-art Ground Water Replenishment System instead of releasing the water to the ocean through storm drains. After an extensive purification process, the water was stored in Orange County's underground water basin and contributed to the County's overall water reserves. Now the lagoon will be filled with clean water from the aquifer. (Paul Hiffmeyer/Disneyland)
