EAST HARLEM, Manhattan — Update: Water was restored to the Taft Houses Tuesday night; see more here.
Just hours after water was restored to a NYCHA building in East Harlem, tenants were once again reporting they were without water.
Residents at the Taft Houses started reporting water outages between 11:30 a.m. and 11:50 a.m. at three of the buildings — about six hours after a NYCHA official told PIX11’s Rebecca Solomon the water main break was repaired.
Nearly 1,000 residents were impacted by the outages in the three buildings, according to the myNYCHA outage website.
NYCHA later confirmed a second water main broke in the building’s basement on Tuesday. Water was restored around 9 p.m.
Thousands of tenants initially lost access to water for nearly 48 hours after a water main break Sunday morning impacted several buildings at the complex.
At its peak, nearly 3,000 residents had no running water late Sunday night.
