new storm-drain cover @ 6th & San Julian Street!

brand new shiny storm drain @ 6th & San Julian- also, the hole around the fire hydrant has been filled, before, the crater was proving a place for trash pile up

Last Friday the LA Department of Public Works came to Skid Row and put a new storm-drain grate at the mouth of the gutter @ San Julian & 6th. Hooray!

This particular opening was  constantly clogged with trash, and rats could often be seen crawling out of it. My life is strange now- true. I walked by this new grate yesterday, saw it, then started jumping up and down with excitement.

In all seriousness- this is an example of government working. Measure O made this possible. Several local community members pushed for this drain to get covered, did the research and bam! New storm-drain cover!

the same storm drain during last May’s “Skid Row Community Clean-Up day”- volunteers shoveled 10 bags of debris out of this storm gutter

    The City of LA Operation Clean Streets team coordinated the installation of the storm drain cover 2 days after it was requested. Kudos to the City of LA Operation Clean Streets team.

    Operation Healthy Streets is the BUSINESS! They are doing/did a great job of cleaning Skid Row and the residents here are very happy with their attention.
