What a dump!

A faulty water pipe burst inside Community Board 6’s homebase in Cobble Hill on Thursday — flooding its digs so badly that residents won’t be able to drop in for weeks.

“It’s not gushing anymore, just dripping,” District Manager Craig Hammerman said on Monay, adding repair crews were on the way. “We’ve been kind of jury-rigging work stations, projecting it will take weeks or months [to fix].”

The several-inches–deep flood occurred after an old, brittle pipe exploded — causing a gaping hole in the ceiling and destroying some files — at the office on Baltic and Court streets.

Until damages are repaired, folks from the board’s coverage area — Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook and Park Slope — must air concerns about trash pickup, parking and nuisance bars, via phone or e-mail instead of in person. Residents may also experience delayed response times to inquiries.

“All we ask is your patience, cooperation and understanding as we muddle through,” Hammerman said.

Contact Community Board 6 by calling (718) 643-3027 or e-mailing districtmanager@BrooklynCB6.org.
