Up Comes a Bubbling Crude May 23, 2012 by Charlie London Neighbors have complained for months about the beautiful fresh water that’s been literally going down the drain near the intersection of Ponce de Leon and Vignaud in Faubourg St. John. Today there is a new development! The water broke through the pavement this morning. One can see from the amount of algae that water has been leaking here for quite a while. The problem is located at 3247 Ponce de Leon near the intersection of Vignaud Street in Faubourg St. John.
