Watery Hall is a room in Metroid Prime in the Chozo Ruins. This room contains the Charge Beam which is blocked by a large gate and can only be opened by scanning the four Runic Symbols around the room and then a final one on the gate itself. After the Charge Beam is acquired, many Eyons on the walls activate and block the exit.

The water that covers the floor here is toxic before Flaahgra is defeated, so the high ledges along the walls must be used to reach the other end. A few lower ledges house Blastcaps and some crates, and a ledge underwater allows access to a Missile Expansion. There is a piece of Chozo Lore behind the Charge Beam that can be scanned; and, nearby, a Morph Ball hole in the wall is blocked with Sandstone. This leads to the Dynamo Access door.

A Secret World can be found in this room: [1]

The Charge Beam

Charge Beam
This is reached by scanning four runic symbols and getting through the gate at the opposite end of the room.
Missile Expansion
To acquire this, the Gravity Suit is required. It is found by walking underwater, to a ledge roughly across from the Charge Beam's location. The expansion is found past this by jumping up it.
