The water on the square flows back into an underground tank through slit gutters, where it is cleaned and returned to the cycle. The water is cleaned by passing it through a filter filled with quartz sand. The quartz sand in the filter is routinely replaced to maintain the cleanliness of the water. Special Services were tasked with removing the sand by suction.
