The fences are coming down around the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.
The water was refilled earlier this month and, after 20-months of construction, it will re-open to the public.
The Reflecting Pool was almost completely reconstructed and redesigned in the $34-million project.
The stagnant pool of water that was here before now has a new filtration system that will keep the water moving.
It's shallower and will be fed with 4-million gallons of water from the Tidal Basin instead of city reserves.
The water will filter through a pump system, being cleaned and recirculated.
Before this, the Reflecting Pool lost about 500-thousand gallons of water every week because of leaks and evaporation.
Since there was no filtration system, it had to be drained and cleaned twice a year.
The National Park Service also added some cosmetic touches with a specially tinted concrete that will improve the reflectivity of the pool.
The dirt walkways around the pool have been replaced with a paved path and are now wheelchair accessible.
The renovation project took nearly two years to complete and was funded with stimulus money.
