Manchester elderly housing project hit by heating woes
Nine of the 100 units in the complex were affected by the problem, which began Saturday evening when a pipe in a radiator on an outside wall burst. The rupture led to reduced pressure and air pockets in the forced hot water system.
John McGrath, the MHA maintenance director, said crews were bleeding the heating system in order to restore the complex to full heating capacity.
MHA workers took temperature readings in several apartments and found temperatures ranging from 62-73 degrees on Saturday evening an no apartments with a temperature of less than 65 degrees by midday on Sunday.
Executive Director Dick Dunfey said that the housing authority did a well-being check on residents, and noted that the community rooms in the building had adequate heat and could accommodate residents from the colder apartments.
The O'Malley complex is home to elderly and disabled residents.
