Free Rain Barrels Available for Hoboken Residents – Workshop on Saturday, August 2nd

Wednesday, Jul 30, 2014

The City of Hoboken will host its second Rain Barrel Installation Workshop on Saturday, August 2, 2014 from 11:00am to 12:30pm and will be providing a free rain barrel to the first 25 Hoboken residents who register and participate. To sign up, visit www.hobokennj.org/greenteam/rainbarrel.

Rain barrels can be used to capture stormwater runoff that otherwise would have gone directly into the sewer system. The stored water can later be used for gardening or other uses. Every gallon of water kept out of the sewer system through green roofs, rain barrels, street trees, rain gardens, porous pavers, and other green infrastructure helps to reduce flooding.

The workshop, which will provide information on maintaining a rain barrel, including keeping it free of mosquitoes, is open to all Hoboken residents interested in installing a rain barrel on their property. Participants will retrofit a 55 gallon recycled food grade plastic drum into a fully functional rain barrel and will receive a free rain barrel at the conclusion of the workshop.

Sewer Replacement Project to Begin on Jackson Street on August 4th

Monday, Jul 28, 2014

The North Hudson Sewerage Authority will begin work on Monday, August 4, 2014 to replace three blocks of combined sewer along Jackson Street, from Newark Street to 1st Street. The work is expected to last approximately 8 to 10 weeks.

The existing wooden box sewer, which was constructed in the 1870′s, has deteriorated and partially collapsed, creating blockages in the combined sewer system, which adversely affects drainage in the area. The result of the project will be improved drainage which will help to alleviate local flooding. With the exception of this section of sewer, almost all of the sewer system in Southwest Hoboken has been rehabilitated by the Authority during the last decade.

Construction will take place in three phases as noted below, with each phase taking approximately 2 to 3 weeks to complete. For each phase, parking will be prohibited 24/7 on both sides along the corresponding block. Police will be on site at all times during construction to provide traffic control. The Authority will coordinate with the local businesses and residents to allow driveway access. More >
