Sprinkler issues in Hoboken
We’ve documented many times in the past how the city just can’t seem to keep the water fountains and sprinklers working.
It probably has more to do with the shoddy contractors initially hired than it does the skeleton crew that has to maintain them. But many are either not working at all – and others seem to run too much!
Pier A Park
This past (hot) Memorial Day Weekend saw no action at Pier A Park. Will they ever fix that? It’s the “flagship” park in Hoboken!
Same was true for the shady water play area over at Sinatra Park.
(note: it was operational again this week – but consistently has issues and is likely to break again…)
Church Square Park
The dog fountain over at Church Square Park seems to have a pretty bad leak issue, causing the park to get muddy.
Also at Church Square Park the kiddie fountains apparently are having problems shutting off – as we saw it running at night several times. Water conservation anyone?
Pier C Park
And over at Pier C Park – the little fountain that is supposed to work for a few seconds when you pressed the button – also didn’t shut off at all.
What’s the problem? How hard is it to fix basic plumbing?
