Brooklyn residents demand answers as to why they have no water

CONEY ISLAND, Brooklyn — Families living in the O'Dwyer Gardens, run by the New York Housing Authority, say they don't know when water will come out of their faucets.

"It's really touch and go. I'm sick of it," resident Patricia Dilernia said.

She has four cats and they love her tub, because it's become a dry place to play.

Her building had a pressure problem for months now, she said.

One mom, who did not want to be identified, said she sometimes can't bathe her baby.

"I have bottles of water by my bed, and sometimes I just have to use baby wipes. It's really ridiculous," the mom said.

PIX11 News reached out to the New York Housing Authority for answers and received this statement:

“NYCHA dispatched staff to the resident’s apartment and they are on site addressing the situation. We understand residents’ frustration over this ongoing issue and appreciate their patience as we respond accordingly.”
