WHY IS MY WATER BEING TURNED OFF?
The NYC Department of Design and Construction is managing the capital construction project at various locations in the Brooklyn borough. This project includes, but, not limited to: the replacement/extension of distribution water mains, replacement/installation of fire hydrants, water main valves and restoration of trenches. This is a various location project occurring within several community boards in Brooklyn, a water shutdown is necessary. It will occur at/or about 8:00am and last for approximately eight (8) hours. On occasion, this work may be completed earlier and water service restored.
SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- The DDC recommends that you shut off the water main valve in your house/building in order to avoid problems that may occur if/when sediment enters or is released from your plumbing.
- You are asked to shut off all WATER cooled appliances, which may include air conditioners, etc.
- Once water service is returned, turn the main house valve back on and flush the system by running your faucets to sinks and tubs for a about 15 to 30 minutes.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to learn more about the project, please contact Ms. Sumera Naqvi, the Community Construction Liaison by phone at 929-393-3484, or by email at BEDA001ccl@gmail.com, or call Mo Moussa, the Resident Engineer, at 917-669-2819.
