'Overrun' by rats in Mount Pleasant
Who's responsible: D.C. Department of Public Health
Number of votes to fix: 2
A new neighbor has moved in the 1600 block of Harvard Street in NW D.C.: rats. A neighbor (human that is) said the critters have set up nests in some backyards and chewed through the lids of trashcans. Griper 35-year MtP Resident issued a distress call.
"Our area [is] overrun by rats," the person wrote. "What happened to the Clean City Initiative and the 'War on Rats?'"
35-Year MtP Resident attributes the problem to "scofflaw" Supercan and recycling storage on public space on the block.
"Actually much of that area is federal land," said Dena Iverson, communications director for the D.C. Department of Public Health. "We help with rat abatement in that area. We are going to send out a team tomorrow though to work on this problem."
