NEW LONDON, Conn., June 8 (UPI) -- Officials in a Connecticut city said they shut off the water to a recently installed $11 million fountain after people defecated and urinated in the fountain.

New London officials said the water was shut off to the whale tail fountain after police and firefighters received numerous reports of people urinating, defecating and bathing in the fountain, The Day, New London, reported Wednesday.

"It's sad," City Councilor Michael Buscetto III said at a Monday meeting. "It's two steps forward and three steps backward. There are people in the city who don't care, and they need to be dealt with."

"I'm concerned with the sanitary aspect of the water," Buscetto said.
