A Lake Taho man says his water heater has been shut off by a company due to a water leak and is now on the brink of bankruptcy.
Michael E. Gorman says the leak happened Wednesday at a home in the 6200 block of West State Road, just south of Lake Tahoes border with New Jersey.
Gorman said the leak was the third he’s seen in less than a week and the second in the last two weeks.
He said he was told the water heater was supposed to come back online on Thursday and that he should be able to get back to work.
Gormann said he called a number of companies he’s contacted to find out what would happen to his water, but the call was answered by the same person that said his water had been shut down.
He has not heard from any of the companies since.
Garnett and his wife are looking for a water heater repairman to repair their old water heater.
Gannon said he and his family were in the area and were supposed to return to their home on Thursday, but it was too far to drive.
Gogan said the water leak is the worst he’s experienced since he bought the home, and he has called numerous companies.
The company he called was told they would not be able for two days to come to the house to help him with repairs, but they are still waiting.
He told USA Today he was worried about the family’s safety.
The Lake Tahos Sheriff’s Office said it has been called to the home multiple times since Gorman contacted them about the leak.
The sheriff’s office said it was investigating the leak, and Gormann has not returned calls for comment.
