A snow storm blanketed NYC on the Christmas Holiday weekend with an average of over 15″ of snow. When a homeowner has a water main break, and needs a water main repair who can they depend on? In this case a homeowner water main repair was needed urgently. The main water line ruptured in the sidewalk area. That left the occupants with a NYC DEP “Three Day Notice” to respond to.

They also removed the stranded cars, an actual service to the community. Water main work proceeded in the most of dire weather conditions, regardless of the obstacles.
