City Offers Assistance to North Fairmount Residents Without Heat
Call 311 to Access a Hotel Room

CINCINNATI – The City of Cincinnati is offering temporary housing and additional resources for residents in North Fairmount whose homes are without heat due to flooding connected to a water main break. A water main break earlier in the week affected a natural gas main owned by Duke Energy.

The water entered the gas main and flooded the gas lines to residences on three nearby streets. As a result, the City has learned gas service to an estimated 176 properties was affected, with some unable to use their furnaces. The City is working closely with Duke Energy to respond to affected homes and resolve ongoing issues.

Residents in the affected area who cannot use their furnace due to the flooding should call 311. Once the callers are verified, they will be given instructions on how to access hotel rooms being provided by the City.

A water main break occurred Monday at the intersection of Baltimore and Brestel Avenues in North Fairmount. Although the break was repaired by early Tuesday morning, flooding affected the natural gas main, causing issues for nearby properties.
