A tipster passes along word that Christodora House residents have been without gas for cooking and hot water these past two weeks... and, according to a memo — titled Important Notice #3 — dated June 19 from the management company, there won't be any in the weeks ahead either here in the residential building on Avenue B at East Ninth Street...
The memo notes that "the plumbing company has successfully obtained the required Buildings Department permit and are in the process of replacing defective lines in the basement where the initial leak originated."
And what's next? Back to the memo...
"Once all the gas lines hold the required pressure, the plumbers will contact Con Edison to schedule their building inspection. Please note the pressure tests and the Con Edison inspection is expected to be a lengthy process over several weeks, if not longer. It is hard to determine a time frame at this point."
