Snow Storm Does Not Prevent Balkan From Servicing A Customer’s Water Main Repair


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 the water main had ruptured in the sidewalk area leaving the occupants with a NYC DEP “Three Day Notice” to respond to.
