When Philly’s water mains break, city offers little support for victimized businesses

Amber Ashley Parker, 31, who lives on Arch Street, criticized the city at a recent informational meeting with representatives from the water, streets, and commerce departments for businesspeople, property owners, and residents at the Independence Mall Visitors Center. The city, she said, should have more data on how a major water main break affects a community. The consequences of an infrastructure failure can include lack of parking due to repair work, the instability of the street, and the elimination of foot and car traffic.
