So, this drainage issue has become personal. Twice since this issue has been publicized there has been vandalism to the adjacent property, ripped down alarm sign, twice, big garbage dump on front lawn and dying grass, looks like it got some Roundup. Dirty hands are involved as they waste precious water for personal gain. EBMUD was already called on this and their response "not our problem". As soon as this issue is publicized the water flow decreases and then when the coast seems clear, starts up again. Sooner or later this is going legal.

5910 Macarthur Boulevard Oakland, CA 94605, USA - Millsmont
The newspaper distribution boxes on the sidewalk next to the bus stop have not been in use for months. They are an eye sore given their state: broken, graffiti and rusting. The two newspaper companies need to remove these boxes if they will not fill them nor repair them as intended. The City of Oakland doesn't need additional eye sores in areas that are making an effort to improve their image.
6869 Simson Street Oakland, California - Millsmont
The home at 6869 Simson Street is occupied by Section 8 housing people. They dump their trash on the street and curb area, as well as the designated containers. The street appears to be a garbage dump near the cans. The renters do not tidy up the front of the property and it continuously looks like a pig sty. The owner of the property is out of the country, and there is no visible property management personnel to tell the tenants to clean up their mess. When confronted about the issue the tenants are belligerent.
