Peter Griswold Gets Response About RV Dumping

(2 July 2019) Peter Griswold, a Venice resident, has been asking all to address the RV dumping on the streets, in the sewer drains, lack of dumping stations. He has gotten a reply from Councilperson Nury Martinez of the 6th District.

This is what Griswold wrote:

Many RVs park overnight on Public Streets streets….
What do you know about where they discharge their waste + sewage??
What do the RVRs even know about where to dispose of their sewage??
What has the City or Sanitation or even the Media done to publicize this??
RVs use curbside storm drains after dark and this abuse is not publicized!!
RVs should have a list where sanitation and pump-out facilities are located.
RVs should show evidence of working waste systems and Sanitation Permits.

Griswold received two responses from Martinez’s office. They are reprinted here because there is useful information in each note, perhaps, only for those in SunValley, but the gesture was appreciated.

Thank you for your email. I am forwarding your concerns regarding RVs illegally dumping in storm drains to my field staff. My staff and I will review your comments and will work to address your concerns in a timely manner.

Apparently, others have asked the same question so the last response was written to four other people as well as Griswold.

Good Afternoon, I hope this message finds you well. My name is Marcos Sanchez and I am Councilwoman Nury Martinez’s District Director.

What is the best phone number to contact you by? The City does have tools to address these issues on our streets. Do you have an address where this dumping is occurring. I am out of the Sun Valley office this week. My number is 818-771-0236

Thank you again and looking forward to hearing from you.

The Venice Update did have an article about dumping and area dumping stations available. See Venice Update article.
