HUNTINGTON — The Cabell-Huntington Health Department responded Thursday to complaints that tenants of Highlawn Place had been without water for nearly 24 hours, according to Mike Stacy, a sanitarian with the health department.
The high-rise, which is located at 1130 3rd Ave. in downtown Huntington, had plumbing problems. Management at the predominantly senior housing facilty were working to fix the issue and expected to have the issue resolved by Thursday evening, Stacy said.
The health department requested that the management company provide water for the residents and portable toilets. The company was delivering water on Thursday afternoon, Stacy said.
The facility is managed by Highlawn Senior Apartments, LP, which partners with Gary Collett, who is president of California Commercial Multi-Family Inc. Both companies are based in Westlake Village, Calif.
The health department was expected to follow up on the situation early Friday to determine if water had been restored.
