Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Ocean technology. Image 4 of 4. President and director of the company Nymphea Water taking the first taste of fresh water from a fountain in the sea. This floating platform is connected by a flexible pipe to a fresh water spring on the seabed. Passing boats can stop and collect water, and there are plans to pump the water to the mainland. The fresh water source is at a depth of 36 metres below the surface, and is about 800 metres offshore on the Franco-Italian border in the Mediterranean Sea. The spring is fed from the Alps. See images T700/112-115 for a sequence of the pipe's construction. Photographed in 2003.
