In recent years, controlled dissipation has proven to be a useful tool for the probing of a quantum system in an ultracold setup. In this paper we consider the dynamics of bosons induced by a dissipative local defect. We address superfluid and supersolid phases close to half filling that are ground states of an extended Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonian. To this end, we solve the master equation using the Gutzwiller approximation and find that in the superfluid phase repulsive nearest-neighbor interactions can lead to enhanced dissipation processes. On the other hand, our mean-field approach indicates that the effective loss rates are significantly suppressed deep in the supersolid phase where repulsive nearest-neighbor interactions play a dominant role. Our numerical results are explained by analytical arguments and, in particular, in the limit of strong dissipation we recover the quantum Zeno effect.
