Nurse on COVID-19 front lines coping with lack of running water at home
A nurse at Montefiore Medical Center who is caring for patients with COVID-19 is dealing with a lack of running water at home.
Willis Harris leaves a bucket in his tub while he is at work for his 12-hour shift so that he can use that water to bathe when he comes home.
He says he has been without water for almost two months now, and has made many calls to 311 and the Department of Environmental Protection about it. He says he's had four plumbers come to his home, and the experts all say the problem is in the street.
"Two months is just too long, two months of running around because I'm trying to get this resolved," says Harris. "They made a recommendation because everyone that has come to my home is saying to me, 'This is not your issue.'"
Harris is hoping for more than a trickle of water soon.
