One of the major issues facing the East County Performing Arts Center is its roof. While we learned a couple of weeks ago that the firewall was compromised with a “permanent installation” by a former management tenant above and near the stage, this leak on the right side of the theater (house right) will have to be addressed. Different things have been suggested about this leak, including that the source of it has been caused by an accumulation of dead pine needles in a key drainage pipe. It has also been suggested that with an installation of a drainage scupper on this parapet wall that this could be one solution of what will eventually be an expensive complete roof job.
How things were allowed to get this far I’ll never understand (although some “theorycasts” are entirely plausible).
