sewer contractorNYC water main work in Manhattan required completing a water line replacement that had a deadline to meet. Recently a local businessman was planning to open a brand new restaurant in Manhattan and many unexpected issues arose. In New York City a “Holiday work embargo” is imposed every November and results in restricted work hours or no work permitted at all until after the New Year. In this particular case on West Houston Street in Manhattan both time of day and days permitted to work were restricted were in place just when the water main work was required.

The required water line repair and water line replacement work had to be performed on the weekend only and had to be completed prior to November 19th. New York City water main work in Manhattan is very complicated even without these added issues. Failure to meet the November 19th deadline could result in the restaurant incurring severe financial hardships such as missing the entire holiday season of valuable business. Missing the Holiday season of business in the present economy could be a reason for a business failing before it even opens.
