EmNet flooding technology installed, flood pump coming online this summer
The City of
recently finished installing a state-of-the-art wireless sewer monitoring system. Sensors have been placed under manhole covers in key locations throughout the City. Hoboken
“This is one of the most technologically advanced and innovative wastewater monitoring systems available, and it will collect and transmit important data today as we are hit by another strong storm,” said Mayor
Dawn Zimmer. “I have been advocating for this system since 2007 when I was a Councilwoman, and I’m proud that we are another step closer to addressing our longstanding flooding problem. The wet weather pump under construction should alleviate much of the worst flooding, but we need this high-tech system to collect the data we need to understand how we can completely and cost-effectively solve our flooding problem for the long term.”
In June, 2010, the City Council voted to award a contract to EmNet to install the real time flood monitoring sensor system. On March 3rd, EmNet completed the installation of of the system.
EmNet is a multi-disciplinary engineering company specializing in real time wireless technology solutions to help optimize various utility assets.
