Emergency Water Main Replacement In Brooklyn, NYC DEP Issues Three Day Notice To Repair

Jobsite Reports
June 24, 2010

by David Balkan

NYC sewer contractorWater main replacement required by Brooklyn Homeowner, the NYC DEP issues a “Three day Notice” requiring a water main replacement. When a Brooklyn homeowner sees water bubbling out of the roadway, little did they suspect that the DEP would issue them a violation and they would have to replace their own water main.

That is what happened on East 29th Street on a recent Monday. When they happened to speak to a cousin of theirs, it turned out he recently had the same water main replacement done at his own property on Neptune Avenue. Their cousin highly recommended who they had hired, Joseph L. Balkan Inc and that is all they had to here. Piece of mind when an emergency plumbing condition arises is very important, that is the value of ‘word of mouth’.

They hired Balkan on a Tuesday afternoon and the water main replacement was started and completed the very next day. Standard with a Balkan water main replacement is high quality materials and fittings, removal of all wet soil and replacement with DOT approved back-fill material, and “same day’ restoration of all disturbed areas. In addition they receive a 10 year guarantee from a company that has been in business for over 50 years, a guarantee they can be secure in. As a standard customer courtesy, Balkan sent their cousin a $50.00 Balkan Plumbing Gift Certificate as a ‘Thank You’ for the recommendation. A great water main job, and a free meal- not a bad deal at all! Whether in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, or the Bronx, Balkan Sewer and Water Main Service is the most trusted name when it comes to sewer replacements or water main replacements.
