EL PASO--- Tenants at an east El Paso apartment complex say they've had enough of living without water service for 24 hours a week.

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the High Ridge Apartments complex turns off service in order to install brand new hot and cold water valves.

Some say it's leaving them without water to shower, clean dishes, cook, or even use the bathroom, yet they're being charged each month for a full water bill.

Apartment complex representatives say they're trying to complete the project as quickly as possible.

unfortunetly the personnel at the office did nothing wrong to cause this problem. poor planning on the part of the builder or plumber in the beginning of the construction, did not allowed for individual water cut-offs before each faucet. therefore tenants will have to endure this situation a little longer.
patience,patience,people-learn to appreciate the convenience of running water in your near future.

unfortunately you dont know how to spell and the convenience of running water what? are you serious what are we in the 1800's. upgrades have to be done and thats fine but when your at home and you cant flush your toilet i mean i am not sure if you know but after a few hours feces starts to stink or should we just hold it in for 8 hours. at the very least the apartments need to reduce the rent while the repairs are being made.

This apartment complex is ridiculous. People are not meant to live this way. Luckily, my husband and I are leaving this horrible situation very soon but it makes me feel bad to see new tenants moving in who have no idea of what is happening. It is so frustrating when you can't even go to the bathroom or wash your hands in your own home. And the management has been very rude. With any luck, High Ridge apartments will be listed as an off limits establishment for military personnel.

Hell no i would not pay all my water bill! what about the children or seniors that need water and yea you need water day and night! that is so wrong of the apartments and i think that Texas Mayor and everyone around him do something about this! it is so sad to live that way!!!!!
