Water Main Leaks & DEP 3-Day Notices
It is common for a homeowner to first become aware of a water line leak after noticing a stream of water on the outside of the house, after experiencing low water pressure or receiving a 3-day notice violation from DEP. There are several important facts to assist in determining if your pipe is leaking, where the leak is coming from and whether the leak is from your pipe or a neighbor’s pipe. Our emergency water main repair services can help you locate and repair a leaky line.

Attempting to repair a lead pipe may turn what should be a quick repair, into a large and potentially costly emergency.
