DEP ignores reported water leak
"Hi, I live on 170 street between Union Turnpike and 81st ave in Jamaica. Across the street from St Johns campus. It was first noticed that the new water main was broken. A neighbor put in a service request with 311 they closed it stating they couldn't find the leak. I noticed the leak on Wed 9/17 and put in a service request with 311 which as of tonight is still pending. I feel this is just total incompetence of the DEP to leave a water main broken and leaking for at least 4 days that we know of. Attaching a video of the leak. Maybe you could shame these incompetent people at the DEP into doing their jobs. The indifference of this department is beyond belief.
Thought this might be of interest to you." - anonymous
