At Monterey and Huntington.
A Monrovian writes to say that he has contacted the city several times during the past two years about water regularly running down streets but hasn't seen any change. He wrote me a letter, which I have edited, here:
- First is all the way down Huntington Drive, from the shopping center with Oto Oto, Tashio and the old Daphne's Greek restaurant. Probably thousands of gallons every day wasted. Do you ever see the puddles around the Shell Gas Station in the mornings all the way to Highway Esplanade?
- Second is Live Oak Cemetery. Water flowing down Walker Ave, Taylor, Duarte Rd, El Norte, and Myrtle, plus down our driveway and always into our machine shop.
- Third is I believe coming from around the shopping area with the Jack In The Box at Myrtle and Duarte every morning. Water flowing past Spanner on Myrtle [three blocks away].
Still has not stopped. The cemetery been happening for over eight years, and Huntington Drive for as long as I can remember!
I send pictures, times and dates. The city says that someone will investigate, but it's still happening.
UPDATE: A relevant letter.
I am the owner of the Shell Station at Huntington and Monterey. First off, thank you for your involvement with the city and keeping the public updated. I follow your website daily as a business owner.
Regarding the water waste, I just want to make sure its clear to your readers it is not coming from the Shell Station. We have seen that water flow for many years and I believe the City did investigate. Not sure what the conclusion was.
We take the water shortage seriously and hope the water wasting will stop.
