Whose Responsible Anyway?
On a daily basis our water main team receives many inquiries regarding the number one symptom of a water main break (water leaking outside the property). Or have questions regarding 3 and 10 day notices; in which our team is always more than happy to answer any questions. However, one common, yet understandable assumption is since the water pipe is leaking underground in the street it’s not the customer’s responsibility; but of the city. Unfortunately, this is incorrect. Within the five boroughs of NY the property owner is responsible for the water main located in the street.
