No Water 5 Weeks
- 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Newyork City
Four weeks ago, the city Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) shut off a water line that supplies four Brooklyn homes with more than 50 residents, including families with young children and senior citizens who have lived in the city for over 50 years. The residents had only recently regained access to their homes after being displaced by hurricane Sandy. Today, they’re still without water, though it will soon be winter, which means they’ll be without heat and their pipes will freeze.
How can it be that in America, people are going without get water and no one will help?
However, the residents of 12 Brighton 3rd Place [WHAT’S THEIR NAME?] refused to provide the plumber with access to fix the connection. When DEP said he could gain access at another point outside 14 Brighton 3rd Place, Balkan Plumbing raised its bid for the job from $7,900 to nearly $17,000. The plumber said he has reason to believe that 12 Brighton 3rd Place, like 305 Ocean View, has water from an authorized connection to a city line. The residents of 12 Brighton 3rd place, who may not own the building, said no one has helped them in the past, so they didn’t care–even after they were told that an elderly woman whose husband had just passed away is without water.
