CON EDISON REFERS CUSTOMERS TO WEB SITE FOR CLAIMS
NEW YORK – Con Edison’s outreach van, which has been assisting customers since the July 18 steam-main incident, will be open for two more days: Wednesday, August 22 and Thursday, August 30 at 14 W. 30th St. between Fifth Avenue and Broadway. It will be open from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
After August 30, those seeking to file a claim or who have questions about claims from the July 18 event may download reimbursement forms or obtain additional information by visiting the Con Edison Web site at www.conEd.com.
The company is advising people who were near Lexington Avenue and 41st Street after 6 p.m. on July 18 and had dust or debris on their clothing and belongings to put them in a plastic bag and bring it to the customer service van on August 22 or August 30. Con Edison will arrange for the safe disposal of these items. Customer-care personnel will be available to help people fill out a reimbursement request.
