Water Main Break: 9th and Jefferson


3rd Hoboken NJ Water Main break in less than a week!

Oh my goodness – we need to have a word with these damn water mains in Hoboken. Why are they constantly bursting open at between 2am and 4am? Don’t they know that Hoboken411 needs his rest?

Shortly after 3am this morning – a big water main at the intersection of 9th and Jefferson Streets sprung a healthy leak. With water coming out of both sides of the street – flooding all the way to the ShopRite – and to 9th and Adams. Seems like residents may have some water trouble soon. United Water said they were at least an hour out.

7th Street, 12th and Washington – and now this latest episode. When will it stop? (FYI – I did say “expect more breakage soon” in my last story, didn’t I?)

The situation is profoundly ridiculous in this city. I’m certain each and every policy dictating member of City Hall knows that the plumbing is failing, but where is the plan of action?
