leak from con-edison manhole
Early this am I discovered water leaking from the front of my cellar pouring down thru the electric main also located in the front of the house. I checked outside in the front of the building and there was no melting snow but out in the street located directly in front of my house there was rain and melting snow pouring down thru the open con-edison grate. I called con-edison but they do not seem concerned because I have electric power. My concern is two fold 1) how dangerous is this immediately and 2) how potentially destructive is this to electric main inside. Many years ago I and some of the surrounding houses lost power because of salt and water damage to the lines. Must I wait until I lose power and then get more immediate attention or should I call an electrician? Thanks for your help.
