Who is responsible for paying to move Citi Bike when water main or sewer repairs are needed?

alexfiglioliacitibike

alexfiglioliacitibike

Citi Bike is NYC’s largest bike share program, with 8,000 bikes and 500 stations across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. It was designed for quick trips with convenience in mind, and it’s a fun and affordable way to get around town. However, what happens when you need sewer or water main repairs and there’s a Citi Bike station in front or on your property? Who is responsible to move Citi Bike so work on your water main or sewer lines can begin?

if a Citi Bike station is installed on your property and your water main breaks or sewer needs to be replaced, the property and/or homeowner is responsible for the cost to move the Citi Bike station and bicycles, so repairs can be made. When your water line or sewer needs to be repaired or installed, Citi Bike will not help the property owner with the cost of moving the station. There is no workaround to get to the water lines that are installed underground. NYC Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) will charge the local plumber who is doing the repair/install of the sewer or water main with taking down the Citi Bike station. This cost is then pass onto the property owner in addition to the cost of the repair of the sewer or water main. Sidewalks and streets need to be dug in order to get to the water and sewer lines. The cost of moving a Citi Bike station starts at $8,000.00 and loss of revenue is also charged on a daily basis until repair restores service. The station, bicycles and anything related to Citi Bike would need to be removed prior to work being done.

Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer, encourages all property and homeowners with Citi Bike stations located on their property to contact their local council and help to revise these guidelines. The cost of moving Citi Bike stations and their bicycles shouldn’t be the property owner’s responsibility. Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer is NYC’s expert water main and sewer repair company. With over 80 years of experience, we are NYC’s premier water and sewer company. Contact us at 718-852-8700 for additional information.

Sewer Replacement Done Right By Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer

The last thing anyone wants to think about is their sewer. That invisible line of pipe is supposed to take away all of the waste from your home. It’s a nasty thing, and we don’t like to think about it. But when your sewer backs up frequently or your drains clog, you have to consider your sewer. It probably needs to be repaired or possibly even replaced.

If you need sewer repair or replacement, you’ve come to the right place. Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer helps people in the New York City area maintain their sewers so that they don’t have to think about it at all. We offer the best quality services at the best prices.

Most sewer complaints are first addressed with a sewer inspection. This is done by sending a camera on a cable into the sewer line so that we can see what is going on. This requires only a small access point to be dug, so you don’t have to worry about your landscaping. Most repairs can also be done through this small access point.

Once we can see what is going on we can recommend repair or replacement. If a repair is needed we will tell you up front what must be done and how much it will cost. There are no hidden fees with our services. We will always repair your sewer when we can. But, when we can’t, we can do your sewer replacement.

A sewer replacement is done by digging a thin, narrow trench alongside the existing sewer pipe. It is then dug out and new pipe put in. Once the new pipe is installed we cover the pipe back up.

Whatever your sewer concerns, we can help. We are open days, nights and weekends to serve you when you need it most. If you have a sewer clog or backup and need immediate attention we can be there to help you any time day or night. If you need to address deeper issues with your sewer line, such as continuous backups or drain clogs, we can help with that too. We offer free estimates on sewer repair and sewer replacement.

Call us today for your free estimate, or to get immediate assistance please call Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer at 718-852-8700 anytime or contact us on our online form http://alexfigliolia.com/contact-us/

Freezing Temperatures Can Lead to Broken Water Mains – Call Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer 24/7

It is common for water main breaks to occur more often over the winter months.   Throughout NYC from December to February, Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer receives an increase in emergency calls regarding broken water mains due to freezing cold temperatures.   Water lines tend to expand and contract which weakens the water pipes during cold temperatures.  If a pipe is already weakened from corrosion, expansion and contraction would cause the pipe to crack.

Frozen ground is another factor in water line breaks throughout the winter months.  When water turns into ice, it can expand.  When ice forms in soil it pushes the surrounding ground with great force.  This leads to a movement in the ground as well as any nearby pipes.

A recent pipe burst this weekend in sub-freezing weather – Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer responds

Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer was called to a home in the Bronx on a 5 degree day.  The homeowner noticed a steady stream of water showing up in-front of his house out of nowhere.  Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer’s foreman first performed a noise test on the pipe to confirm that it was his pipe that had broken.  It was quickly confirmed that there was a loud rumbling noise on his water line.  The noise confirmed that water was moving and escaping the pipe at some point in-between the house and the connection to the city water line.  It was not a complete surprise that the pipe had broken, it was the original lead pipe installed when the house was built in 1935.

Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer was at the house the very next morning to begin installing the new pipe from the roadway, to inside the house.  All required permits were obtained, and the crew began digging for the new 1 inch copper water line installation.  Thirty five feet of new pipe was installed, which included making one hole in the roadway and one hole on the property.  Once the holes were dug, compressed air was used to blow tunnels from one hole to the next until they reached the foundation wall of the house.  At this point the new copper water line was pulled through each tunnel and connected to the existing meter inside the house and a new house control valve was installed as well.

Please call Alex Figliolia Water  & Sewer if your home or property’s water line has been damaged due to freezing weather conditions.  Call Us Anytime:  718-852-8700

Sewer Line Inspection – Call Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer Today

What type of installations require an inspection?

Most subsurface sewer and water line installations require an inspection from either the DEP or Department of Buildings. If proper inspections are not arranged and the work approved, the sign-offs will never be issued.

Sewer Line Work
Any sewer work regardless of whether a new installation, upgrade, disconnection, or repair requires an inspection. If a sewer permit is secured in NYC and no inspection is arranged that permit will remain an ‘open item ‘ and could delay a sale of the property and prevent a certificate of occupancy form being issued. If the work is for a disconnection for demolition of the property the demolition will not be signed off.

Water service line work
In the City of New York when a main water line is installed as new, there are cases when an inspection is not required. Domestic water services (services that do not provide fire protection) up to 2″ in diameter do not require a NYC DEP inspection. If a sign-off is required for such work the Licensed Master Plumber that performed the installation is permitted to submit an affidavit to the NYC DEP. The DEP will then issue a sign-off based upon the plumbers’ affidavit.

Water Line Break From Freezing Temperature -Call Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer

It is common for water main breaks to occur more often over the winter months. There are approximately 35% more water main breaks throughout NYC from December to February, which is simply due to freezing weather conditions. As the weather turns cold, water lines tend to expand and contract which weakens the water pipes. If a pipe is already corroded and in a weakened state, it makes sense that the expansion and contraction would cause the pipe to crack. Frozen ground is another factor in water line breaks throughout the winter months. When water turns into ice, it can expand. When ice forms in soil it pushes the surrounding ground with great force. This leads to a movement in the ground as well as any nearby pipes.

If your water main or lines break use of the freezing temperatures, call Alex Figliolia Water & Sewer right away. We are open 24/7 and provide emergency repair service in NYC for over 85 years.
