Water Main Break
Dawn Zimmer said Wednesday that the city’s aging water infrastructure has been neglected for decades.
A boil water advisory was lifted Saturday at Hoboken, after multiple mains and bursts over two days sent water spewing.
A water main break shut down a section of 26th Street in Kips Bay Sunday.
The subways were back up and running in the Flatiron District Saturday, after a large water main break flooded a station and disrupted service.
The aging, 36-inch water main broke in the middle of the street at 23rd and Broadway around 10:45 a.m., DEP spokeswoman Mercedes Padilla said.
A water main break left seven basements flooded in eastern Queens Tuesday evening.
The Cross County Parkway and all but one lane of the Saw Mill River Parkway have been reopened and workers have completed pipe work on a broken water main in Yonkers.
The city is providing drinking water to senior and nursing homes. A list of water distribution stations can be found inside this post.
Flooding closed parts of the Saw Mill River and Cross County parkways earlier in the day and prompted a boil water advisory. As of Monday night, work crew had not been able to completely remedy the situation.
Officials said that partial service should be restored within the next two days, but full service likely won’t be restored until at least Wednesday.
Traffic is still a mess as crews continue to repair the pipe, which broke around 2:15 a.m. east of Route 17.
About a foot of water has filled the entire intersection, reported CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider. Crews with the Fire Department, DEP and Con Edison are all on the scene.
The water was spilling from the streets into nearby stores after the 20-inch main broke at Morris Park and Holland Avenues.
Crews are still working to repair damage from a water main break on the Henry Hudson Parkway on Sunday morning.
Tuesday’s commute is back on track for New Yorkers impacted by Monday’s water main break near 106th and Central Park West.
