May Showers: Now at 120 Hours of Sprinkling

Sprinkle, Sprinkle, Little Lot
NEW PHOTO and an email update from a drought-tolerant reader, as of 11:15am Sunday, May 24, 2009: "Thanks for covering this story. We are approaching 120 hours of continuous sprinkler use on city property. This is a village spectacle. These sprinklers have to be spewing at least a gallon a minute. 4 calls to 311." See it in person: 3522 Garden Ave.

I wonder if we could locate the water shutoff for that and shut it down. This is just ridiculous.

I live in the house next door. we called the city water department last week. They said they aren't responsible for it. We called our landlords again today about it...they said of course it's not their property...they've called the water department about it, too. The shut off valve is in the now submerged flower bed, but the yellow shut off valve is broken.

The DWP has ticketed the sprinkler bed, which seems to my layman's eyes to be associated with the LA city parking lot. I guess it could be owned by whoever owns the building on the corner (that houses Woof, etc).

I posted it on Eric Garcetti's facebook page and he said his staff is looking into it.
