“a 6-inch pipe on or at the roof level burst, damaging maybe 3/4 of the apartments”

“Dear PoPville,

I live on the 2nd floor of 800 P St, the west building of City Market at O. Early Saturday morning (July 15th), a 6-inch pipe on or at the roof level burst, damaging maybe 3/4 of the apartments (some are near total losses). The building owners, the construction company, and management do not seem to want the city involved, and even tried to prevent residents whose units were flooding from calling the fire department. HUGE mess throughout the building, poor communication from management, and parades of workers filing throughout the building day and night, going apartment to apartment and ripping up flooring, drilling holes in walls, and leaving large industrial fans and dehumidifiers in place.

No ETA yet on total restoration date. Supposedly, this is the third water damage incident in the ~3 years of CMO’s existence. Need to get the word out. Angry tenants’ meeting last night seemed productive and cathartic, though.”
