by the title it places this outside DC on the beltway   I have placed a yellow circle where I think the fountain is outside on the right side of the building.


This is at  295 meeting 495 DC beltway near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.  Also 210 Indian Head.

This is a very new facility also because it opened up in 2016 or 2017.  So we are not looking at a very old structure.

Yeah, they've been promoting it a lot lately. The grand opening was December 8, 2016, so it was only 18 months old. Cost was 1.3 billion dollars, which overran the original budget by 500 million bucks.

Several cities conduct stray voltage surveys.  Below is a link to what ConEd is doing in NYC.

Yes, and it looks like one of those ray-gun dishes from a Godzilla movie.

The thing about good ideas is that someone else is thinking of it also. 

The technology has has been around for about 8 years now.

I've just written the Stray Voltage Detection app. It's foolproof.

Before you test for stray voltage, you press the "About to test" button. 

Then you touch the surface that you think might the electrified. 

After that, you press the "OK, I didn't die" button on the app. 

If you don't press the second button, the app reports that stray voltage was present.
