PWD broken pipe?

1241 S 15th St has water gushing inside it. Tried to call PWD to simply get hung up on. Not sure who else to notify.

    I had a similar experience Monday. This was around 10:15 PM -- after waiting on hold for eight minutes. Click, click ... and then a dial tone all over again. The phila.gov/water website lacks a process for reporting these online. Not even a relevant FAQ.

    Fortunately, the owner of the building texted me back shortly after PWD's hang-up, and we managed to shut off the water main before the basement flooded more than a few inches.

    Anyway, Jonathan -- don't leave us hanging. What happened?!

    Everyone: what experiences have you had intervening when you hear or see telltale signs of a burst pipe on a neighbor's property?

  • I reported a collapsing street to 3-1-1. When the Water department did not repair, then 3-1-1 provided additional assistance with my call-back. It was fixed but don't know who provided the incentive to actually move on it. I asked: Is the City really looking for a law suit this hard...

    I reported a collapsing street to 3-1-1. When the Water department did not repair, then 3-1-1 provided additional assistance with my call-back. It was fixed but don't know who provided the incentive to actually move on it. I asked: Is the City really looking for a law suit this hard ? Had a friend with a messed up face from an airbag going off on a big hole. Presumably, newer bags aren't as bad.

    I hope 3-1-1 provides some degree of 3rd party pressure in such cases but I won't be hanging any hats on that theory until I hear otherwise.

  • With respect to 1241 S 15th, the owner's name is Amy Patel, but it's not clear that she lives there from the public record.

    Often the only remedy is for the owner (or someone admitted with the permission of the owner) to enter the property and operate the internal cutoff valve. I own and care for a triplex on 15th Street myself, farther south.
    Do you know if the property is currently occupied?

Silent on Philly Police Scandal, Mayor Guilty by Association

www.techbookonline.com

The mayor has been oddly silent on the case of Mr. Brandon Tate-Brown and the internal conflict between the Philadelphia Police Advisory Commission and the Philadelphia Police Department.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner, Mr. Charles Ramsey, his deputies, his rank and file officers, and even his boss, the celebrity Mayor, Mr. Michael Nutter, have been found guilty of the murder of Mr. Brandon Tate-Brown, perjury, conspiracy to defraud the public and host of other charges brought by the people of Philadelphia in the court of public opinion.
