Clean-Up and Repairs
- NYCHA currently is inspecting and cleaning up individual apartments and public spaces. Staff went door-to-door to check on all apartments in Sandy-affected areas.
- If your apartment has any water damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, such as flooding, mold, or mildew, please contact NYCHA's Customer Contact Center at 718-707-7771 and advise the Customer Service Agent that your apartment sustained water damage from Hurricane Sandy.
- The New York City Department of Environmental Protection reported that there are no issues with drinking water in the area's impacted by Sandy. After hearing residents' concerns in the Red Hook Houses, NYCHA is testing drinking water there.
- Power has been restored to all buildings. However, due to the storm impact on the electrical network and building systems, residents may experience intermittent disruptions in service.
- Please report these disruptions to the Customer Contact Center at 718-707-7771 so we can address these intermittent problems.
- NYCHA will have resources in place for as long as necessary to ensure that any disruptions are kept to a minimum, including dedicated lines at the NYCHA Customer Contact Center. If you experience service disruptions, please call the Customer Contact Center at 718-707-7771.
Proper Trash Disposal
- Some trash compactors still need to be restored after being damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
- If the trash chute on your floor has been closed, please do not use it to throw your trash out. Instead, please bring your garbage to a designated trash area.
- Do not dispose of any trash in hallways, stairways, elevators, lobbies, or rear exits. Call the Management Office if you have a large quantity of trash that you don't know what to do with.
