Potomac Waterworks has been involved in the creation and management of water features and pond systems over the past 40+ years. Drawing on a career blending practice and training in landscape architecture, aquatic biology and construction, Paul Cowley, ASLA brings a unique blend of professional and creative tools to each project.
A key feature of our regional and international work has been our focus on living water systems – specifically creating and maintaining water qualities suitable for aquatic plantings, wildlife habitats and ornamental fish collections.
Projects range from minimalist rills and water walls, designing “mud” for aquatic plantings to design/fabrication/management of lake and ornamental fountain/sculpture installations for public spaces and private gardens.
We also provide a valuable technical bridge for artists and designers involved in one-of-a-kind water feature and sculpture installations. We are usually brought in during concept or design development phases to resolve fluid dynamics, equipment space/energy and operational impacts of the planned work. On-going work with ornamental pools and art collections has included extensive training in water quality management and documentation for operators living with these as-built systems.
