Hoboken water smells like mildew?

Some Hoboken residents reporting worse water than usual

Hoboken411 takes water consumption very seriously. Not only is hydration important – I (at the very least) double-filter the water coming out of our faucets.

Mile Square resident Jason has noticed some odd smells coming from the tap as of late:

“Has anyone else noticed that for the past week tap water has smelled like mildew?

At first I thought it was just a faucet issue but the smell is persistent from every water source in our apartment. I have also checked at my office and it smells like mildew there too!! I’ve read that warm weather can cause this but it would make me feel a little bit better to know that I am not the only one that has noticed this. I think it is time to call Hudson Water.

Could this be related to our unbelievably outdated water supply system in town?”

Why haven’t you called united water? That would make more sense than posting on a blog.


Make the investment into a quality water filters for your shower and sinks.

The Aquasana filters I installed a few years ago have made all the difference on several occasions when the water was contaminated due to a water main break. I put in the Aquasana brand water filters because of their high rating for cleaning both the biological stuff and chemicals and metals out of the water.
