Water Shutdown Notice
Posted By flanglois on June 18, 2019
Wide Water Shutdown
This coming Monday June 24, 2019 there will be a water shutdown that will affect the entire building. This shutdown is required to make mandatory repairs to the cold and hot water distribution system for floors 4 thru 11. However, this shutdown will affect all floors 4 thru PH2. All units located on these floors will not have water during the time frames noted below.
What Is Happening
1- At 4:00am Monday 6/24/2019 the hot water boilers will be shut down but the water will be left on at this stage. This is required to bring the water temperature down to ambient temperature so the work can progress on time. Once the boilers are shut down the only hot water available will be what is in the lines and the hot water storage tank.
2- You may shower, use the sinks, etc. until 9:00am water shutdown. Hot water will gradually decrease in your unit starting at 4:00am. We are unable to predict an exact time but at some point there will be no hot water available in your unit leading up to the 9:00am water shutdown.
3- At 9:00am the water to the building will be completely shut off. This is very important – please do not attempt to use any water after 9:00am. Opening a water valve, flushing a toilet, turning on washing machine, dishwasher etc. will cause the system to fill with air requiring more time for the system to balance and deliver water consistently to your unit after the repairs have been completed. This will take everyone’s cooperation…
4- Again, the hot water will be off starting at 4:00am for 10-12 hours and the building without water from the 4th floor thru PH2 from 9:00am-4:00pm.
5- At 9:00am Murray Plumbing and Koppl Pipeline Services will begin work on the two control valve stations for floors 4-11. Isolation valves will be installed to make repairs to the hot water side of the control station and will be used for future service and repairs to this area as needed thus eliminating the need for a building shutdown to make such repairs.
This is highly technical work requiring specialized tools and experts that will be on hand thru out this process. We are hoping for the best but planning for the worst. If anything should change we will send out an updated eblast so you can make knowledgeable decisions.
Please note this water shutdown will have no effect on the fire life safety system or the HVAC close loop system.
We apologize for any inconveniences that this may cause you and thank you for your full cooperation and understanding as we take care of your home.
