STARRETT CITY - Residents at some Starrett City apartment buildings are fed up after going five days without any hot water.

Spring Creek Towers management says two water pipe breaks in one week caused them to shut off the hot water completely. Crews are working around the clock to restore hot water to thousands of tenants.

A notice hangs in the lobby of the building apologizing for the inconvenience. However, residents say it isn?t the first time there have been water problems and they are fearful it won?t be the last.
