The rules state you can only demolish MEDIUM sized buildings
if you are upgrading or a large structure of the same service is already in the city
so this means for example if i wanted to demolish a fountain to build
a cathedral i couldnt even if there was a fountain orthogonically
adjacent to the demolished building still supplying water to that district
thats how i interpret it
great game really enjoying it but looks like we've been playing it wrong
as far as the above is concerned

The orthogonally adjacent fountain in your example would suffice to provide water to its own district and yours, but the fountain you want to replace was also supplying water to all of ITS orthogonally adjacent districts, and removing it might leave as many as three of those without water.

I suppose there could have been an alternative rule that allowed you to check all five of those districts to make sure they had alternative water supplies, but that would have added too much time and complexity. The existing rule is much simpler.

Correct, we considered allowing people to do the "check all surrounding districts for alternative sources of water" rule, and then realized it would cause too many players to consume ibuprofen afterwards! wow
