Memo: No water Tuesday in buildings 1 and 2

From: Harold Jacob, General Manager

Re: No Water on June 30, 2015

Dear Cooperators:

The City of New York requires us to clean the water tanks each year. This work has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 30, from 9:00 A.M. till 9:00 P.M. Both the hot and cold water will be shut.

While cleaning the tanks, we will also do necessary repairs in the laundry room of Building 2, which requires water to be shut. Consequently, both laundry rooms in Building 1 and 2 will be closed during these repairs.

If the work is completed sooner than expected the water will be returned at that time. PLEASE KEEP ALL YOUR FAUCETS IN THE CLOSED POSITION, and make sure you prepare some water for personal use before the shutdown.

If anyone has special needs that should be addressed, please call the Office, we will accommodate, and, if necessary, bathrooms are located in the East River Community Room at 477 FDR Drive.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Thank you.

It’s also worth remembering that whenever the water is shut off in the building, some residue can come through the pipes when they’re turned back on and clog the screens (aerators) in faucets and shower heads. As a result, you may experience low water pressure. Often, you can clean those screens yourself without the need of a plumber.
