“Fountain of Stories” Continues to Flow!

(26 July 2019) The fountain on 3rd Ave just continues to overflow with stories.

First it was the fountain itself appearing on 3rd Ave which is the Skid Row of Venice. Then it was the trash that collected around it. After that it was shown that one man had taken a spit bath using the fountain. After that one man was captured washing his razors or shaving, one couldn’t tell.

The latest is someone taping into the fountain to get the drain water. Am sure the person who tapped into the fountain is an environmentalist doing what he thinks he can to safe the planet’s water.

    EVENTUALLY either the residents of Venice will start falling ill or die from typhus or other 15th century plagues from these encampments or the homeless will.

    Which will happen FIRST – then maybe Bonin and Garcetti will stop this irresponsible fantasy to “end homelessness” by putting it on our front sidewalks.

    Eric Garcetti and Mike Bonin As an experienced backpacker in Ca. I want to say it is ludicrous to allow camping next to rat burrows on 3rd! https://imgur.com/a/ryrvlEE

    How exactly is the marketing propaganda on the bum fountains directed toward “Your” DWP when not a single bum pays our egregious DWP bills?? More like “Their” DWP, as in the taxpayers who pay for the sidewalks you sleep on, the gutters you defecate in, the social services lackeys and advocates who encourage your street life, the police who barely lift a finger to rein in your bad behavior, the EMTs who come out when you OD or pass out, the ER services when you get scraped off the sidewalk, etc etc

    Also standing water is not good at al especially this time of year! Mosquitoes also can go down the drain pipe and breed in that polluted standing water! The LA County Health Dept Vector Management wouldn’t approve of this I sure!

    What’s really disturbing about the Mayor’s Drinking fountain on 3rd is not only are the campers washing themselves there the water is then collecting in a plastic jug being heated by the sun all day. A perfect habitat for all sorts of harmful bacteria to grow! I don’t think Bonin and Garcetti put much thought into this new health hazard they put in our neighborhood.

    It appears to be the drain for the Mayor’s drinking fountain which I would think is not up to city code for it’s not hook up to sewer!
