What’s Up on Henry Street?

This dispatch just in from a BHB tipster:

No clue what’s up, but this is on Henry btwn Remsen and Joralemon, kind of like at the mouth of Hunts Lane by the hydrant on Henry. DEP trucks are digging a hole, water’s spewing out onto Henry. Henry is closed from Remsen to Joralemon as well.

    There’s a never-ending water leak into the storage room at 245 Henry. The is DEP’s second effort in several months to address the problem. Can’t be a fun night for DEP — and can’t be a good thing for ambulances trying to get through: on my way home from work, I saw a LICH bus being forced east on Remsen. You would think DEP might move a truck to let emergency vehicles through….

    Look out, Heather. I may start a weekly “Water Blotter”!

    @joralemoner, as long as you’re not boiling your turkey, you should be fine

    This brings to mind a story a friend told me about the time he was super of a small apartment building during his college years. His phone rang, and a woman who lived there said, “Andy, I just lost my water.” Forgetting that she was pregnant and near her due date, Andy asked if the pressure was different in the bathroom and in the kitchen.

    We, too, lost water service in the middle of cooking Thanksgiving dinner. A+ to DEP who restored service in two hours. C- to 311 who took the call, couldn’t say what was going on but promised that a specialist would call back. No one did.

    I just came back from a roll around the neighborhood. It seems like they have installed a replacement/temporary hydrant.

    Posted my mini-documentary of the event on the BHB photo club page on FLICKR. No activity today as far as I can tell.
