Update from DC Water: “Our guess was it might be a combined sewer outfall. The experts say it is not.
It’s a separate storm sewer that discharges to an open channel that flows to the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River.”

“Dear PoPville,

*not posting it because F them

A reader requests we find the find the original artist so they can repair the damage. Anyone know/have contact info for the artist who did this mural?

“It is under the 695 highway in Capitol Hill next to Garfield Park. It was Bernie as recently as Sunday afternoon, and as of yesterday was still defaced.”
