LOS FELIZ — When water stops flowing through a fountain enough, the fountain dries out and deteriorates. That’s what’s happening to the William Mulholland Memorial Fountain at Los Feliz Boulevard and Riverside Drive, according to the Los Feliz Ledger.
The operation of the Mulholland Fountain has been reduced because of the drought. This and high summer temperatures have damaged the fountain, Anselmo Collins from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power told the Ledger.
“It’s like a house pool. If you don’t put water in the pool, the plaster will dry out and it will crack.” — Anselmo Collins, LADWP
It also hasn’t helped that the fountain has been repeatedly drained and cleaned after people used the it as a toilet, Collins said.
Collins told the Ledger that repairs are expected to be completed by the summer of 2017.
