Take an interactive look at the memorial pools

A New York Times'  interactive panorama shows the progress of the 9/11 Memorial pools at the World Trade Center site. The pools will sit within the footprints of the original twin towers and are expected to produce the largest man-made waterfalls in the country.  Ten large pumps will create 40 pounds of pressure to circulate 52,000 gallons of water per minute for the artificial falls.

This is a rendering of how the pools will look when the 9/11 Memorial opens September 11, 2011.
