Somebody Moishe Rosenthal or Rosenblum or Rosenbaum  decided that he is holy enough to shut down the public and government owned Ramat Eshkol mikva due to "excessive damage" by it's participants.
You can harass him at 052-426-8021
Aizeh Chutzpa.

If someone can confirm that women's is closed, I will begin calling big rabbis and members of kneset.

I have no idea who Rosen***** is. He's not answering and his mailbox is full.
I was there on Purim (yud-daled) and it was in regular condition. It's very possible that there was wilderness on erev Shabbos last week being that it was Shushan Purim. But that's an understood exception and should not effect a normal sober erev Shabbos.
