Water Woes

New, 4 comments

Brooklyn's next tallest tower hasn't yet started rising from the ground, and it's already in trouble with the city. Evidently, the construction crew at the Avalon Willoughby West in Downtown Brooklyn has been illegally using water from a fire hydrant since at least last week; the contractor apparently failed to obtain the required permits from the Department of Environmental Protection. It's unclear how much water the site used for how long, but lack-of-permit fines start at $750. [Brooklyn Paper; previously]
