There is a park in East St. Louis, Illinois, directly across from the Arch. It has a tall overlook facing downtown and this thing, the Gateway Geyser. It looks a lot better on a clear day and when it is spraying up to its full height, but I took what I could get. 

On a day when the air is perfectly still the spray can go over 600 feet, about 190 meters, as tall as the Arch itself. It wasn't half that yesterday although there was little wind. I'll go back on a nicer day.

Makes me think of the fountain at Fountain Hills here.
