Looks like an unofficial public health alert issued by a blog on Monday has gotten the attention of city officials. Last night police cleared some streets in the Venice area, making room for sanitation officials to clean sewage -- including human waste -- allegedly dumped by RV dwellers. One arrest was also made.

One of the cleanups that took place Tuesday night prompted police to instruct up to 15 RV dwellers to leave the block of 3rd Street between Rose and Sunset avenues, according to Yo! Venice, which called attention the sewage dumping issue on Monday.
