Hot Water Shut-off, Monday, Nov 24th,~9AM to ~1:30PM


There is an emergency water shut-off scheduled for Monday, November 24th, from approximately 9AM to 1:30PM in units 3800 to 3822.

We apologize for yet another small inconvenience, but a handful of small leaks in the hot water line are requiring emergency repairs that will require the hot water be shut-off to the upper half of the property (3800 to 3822). Every effort will be made to minimize the off time.

Please do not attempt any repairs of your own during this time; you will be held responsible for any resulting damages.


Heat is not affected.

Power, Heat, and Hot Water Restored


Power, Heat, and Hot Water Restored are restored.

Everyone, while I don’t have specifics, I’ve been told the power is back in the ’30s, which means the boiler room should be producing heat and hot water as well. It’s my understanding the affected residents were only without power for about an hour and a half. I’ll post a further update as I learn more details on how things went.

Heat, Hot Water, and Possible Power Outages Thursday, November 20, 2014


There will be no heat or hot water Thursday, November 20, 2014 anywhere on the property from approximately 8am to 8pm.


Residents in 3832 and 3834 will unfortunately also be without power Thursday, November 20, 2014 from approximately 8am to 8pm.

By now, you should have all see the notices on the doors, so this should not be new to anyone.
As part of the overhaul that’s been ongoing in the boiler room, an electric panel is being replaced, unfortunately, to do this all power running to the 3830s must be taken off line. In addition to being a major inconvenience to the residents in the 3830s, without power, the boiler room will not be able to pump heat and hot water throughout any of the property.
We’ve been told this likely will not take the entire 12 hours, but we think it’s best to prepare just in case.
Residents should prepare in advance of the 8am outage by showering, dish washing, and clothes laundering if necessary before hand.


Do NOT use a space or electric heater! These devices will blow the main breaker in your building, and cause you and your neighbors to additionally have no power. Do bundle up warmly if necessary!

For those residents who will be without power, dry ice will be provided in the event you notified management no later than noon on November 19, 2014. I realize that as of this posting, that deadline has passed, for which I apologize (website issues), but the posted notices in the door included this information as well.
As always, we apologize for the inconvenience this will cause. The property is nearly 50 years old, but by making these improvements we hope to both increase the reliability of our utilities and decrease the likelihood of unexpected failures. If you have any questions or concerns you may call Shea Management at 301-986-1504.
