LOS FELIZ—The Mulholland Memorial Fountain located in Griffith Park has been facing a severe drought this year.

The Fountains recirculating water that sprays throughout the week has been wasteful.

Los Feliz Neighborhood Council has been pleading with The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power about recycling the water.

According to Linda Demmers, President of the LFNC, the LADWP has been meeting these modifications.

The fountain has been shut off during the weekday between 9.a.m. to 4p.m. and the agency has installed special equipment to keep the water under control from spraying.

“We also thought that shutting it down would be symbolic,” said Deemers.

The William Mulholland Fountain that holds about 50,000 gallons of water gained its name and history from a man who arranged this plan to take water from the Owens Valley to Los Angeles in the early 1910s.
