The crews worked tirelessly to get the lines cleared and they succeeded. We can’t thank them enough for all their efforts.
The water is now back on in the Harvard and Yale buildings. This means you can get a drink of water, take a bath/shower or water your plants. This also means you can flush your toilets but we ask that you not flush any type of wipes down the toilet, as that is what clogged the sewer line. We know the manufacturer materials states they are flushable but that is for a single family home, not a multi story building where many individuals are flushing wipes down the sewer line. Just imagine if you decided to flush a whole carton of wipes at once, you know that would create an issue. Well, that is what happens when several households flush the wipes over the course of a day.
This issue caused 12 hours of inconvenience to hundreds of residents today and the expense to address the problem will be great.
The company’s that assisted us today were Super Plumbing and Precision Sewer Services. Their hard work and determination to get service restored was immeasurable. Liberty Mechanical and DWD Mechanical also lent assistance in making sure we had the right crew for the job and for that we thank them.
Our staff worked tirelessly, as they knew the impact this had on so many residents, we thank them for their hard and for staying until the job was done.
Not all residents signed up to receive an email blast, some because they don’t have email. So if you know a resident who doesn’t get an email blast, please reach out to them and let them know the matter has been resolved. A notice will be publicly posted at each elevator lobby area as well.
Thank you and good night.
