Harris Water Main & Sewer: A Story of Community and Compassion

A Heartwarming Story from Queens

In Queens, a homeowner was in distress after receiving a three-day notice from the city for a leaking water main. Unable to afford the repair costs, her water was shut off, leaving her without water for over two months. Adding to her plight, she had recently lost her husband and had to move out of her house. Desperate for help, she reached out to us for an estimate. Recognizing her dire situation, we chose her as the recipient of our annual community support program, providing her with a new water main at no cost. Our crew found the day especially fulfilling, knowing their work was making a significant difference in someone’s life.
