With so many apartment complexes in Bryan/ College Station, there are bound to be complaints.

However, some tenants in a College Station complex say they have good reason to gripe.

Residents at the Stadium View Apartments have been without hot water since Monday.

That's when the complex detected a gas leak and cut the gas off to the property's buildings.

"We're using all four of the burners to boil water and using it to carry water into the bathroom," said Jaimie Morrisroe.

Although water to the apartments was turned off Monday, it was back on Tuesday, but the gas wasn't, which has meant some icy showers.

"I finally took a freezing cold shower last night. I mean I was standing in the shower shivering going I'm warm, I'm warm, I'm warm," said Lindsey Rosewell.

"You don't think about it everyday when you get access to hot water but its really a problem when you don't have it," said Morrisroe.

The complex says its working to get the gas line restored, but there are a few hang-ups.

"Oh good, we don't even have water right now," said Morrisroe as she went to turn on the faucet.

Letters given to residents warn the hot water might not be back on 'til the end of next week.

"People in hurricanes got water back faster and there's been no disaster," said Morrisroe.

While residents may be feeling hot under the collar, all they've received from management is a cold shoulder and even colder showers.

"Like ice water," said Rosewell.

"I'm not out to get anybody, I just think there's some justice due for everyone that lives here, honestly several hundred people without water," said Morrisroe.

Update: Managers at Stadium View said the line had been repaired as of Friday evening, and that gas was to be restored that night.

As of 6p.m., residents say they were still waiting.

Residents say both gas and water is included in their rent. Managers at Stadium View say they haven't been authorized to offer any kind of concession for the week without hot water.
