PLUMBING PROBLEMS FOR CORESTATES ARENA
The Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections stopped all plumbing work on the $217M Corestates Arena . because various contractors had failed to get permits before starting work. Spectacor VP Jim Cima said the 21,000 seat arena was on schedule and would "not suffer" from the L&I action. It is "unclear how long the plumbing work will be idled" (Mark McDonald, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/22).
