Water main break: Big hole @ 9th & Wash
9th Street Water Main Break: The Sequel
Updating this existing Water Main Break at 9th and Washington thread from three months ago (how convenient!)
United Water is back on scene because the water main is broken again, and in need of repair.
Washington Street is closed between 8th and 10th – as well as 9th Street, Bloomfield east.

United Water working to fix Hoboken water main
A water main at 9th and Washington broke earlier this morning – and still continues to be a problem. Businesses and residents in the area immediately surrounding the break are currently without water. It appears to be a 12 inch main, and United Water crews are hard at work trying to fix it. Many hydrants in the periphery had to be opened to bleed the system in order to make the work possible. Pumps are being used as well. A big scene for sure.
They’re uncertain when the break will be repaired, but hope it’ll be completed tonight.
A fairly common occurrence in Hoboken, that’s for sure!
