During the first quarter of this year, there were 6,676 reports of people poop on the streets, Forbes reported.
Overall, at least 118,352 reports of human waste have been reported across San Francisco since 2011.
Government watchdog Open The Books documented every spot of human fecal matter reported to city services over the past eight years. Open The Books is a non-profit organization that accepts no government funding.
Complaints from residents prompted the city to launch a dedicated "Poop Patrol" late last summer in an effort to clean up the streets. A team of Public Works employees patrol the city's defecation hot spots to try to get ahead of the mess.
Which neighborhoods had the most reports?
Overall, 118 neighborhoods and 30 ZIP Codes across the city were affected, according to Forbes.
And nearly two-thirds or 72 percent of the reports came from 10 neighborhoods: Tenderloin; South of Market; Mission; Civic Center; Mission Dolores; Lower Nob Hill; Potrero Hill; Showplace Square; North Beach, and the Financial District.
But the highest concentration was focused in the city's center with more than 23,800 reports of poop since 2008.
The ever-growing homeless population has pushed the city's shelter to their limits.
With more and more individuals are sleeping on the streets, there's little chance for the problem to end any time soon.
