Water main break of the day
Another day in Hoboken
Spotted this water main break on 10th and Willow yesterday evening. It wasn’t major with flooding, mud and catastrophic damage – but caused concern since there was danger of a street collapse, and Willow is a major county thoroughfare and bus route. Hoboken Police and the Parking Authority made arrangements to have several cars moved so the lane of traffic could be shifted away from the leak so that United Water could repair it.
Hoboken city employee Rocco Riccardi, as always – was on scene making sure everything was going smooth! One thing you can say about Hoboken – that when something goes wrong, the situation is almost always handled quickly and professionally. Preventing these problems, well – that’s an entirely different story. Talk to you local councilperson about that – and let me know if you get anywhere. I won’t hold my breath.
