Major infrastructure and new park initiatives approved in Hoboken City Council

Last week’s City Council meeting approved several major initiatives for Hoboken. Based on a news report filed by Jeannette Josue for the Hudson County View:

The Hoboken City Council authorized the application process for New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust projects for the Southwest Resiliency Park ($4.7 Million), the Northwest Resiliency Park ($11.9 Million) and the replacement and drainage for the Washington Street project.

The HCV report further notes:

Mike Leahy, System Maintenance Manager of United Water, continued by saying that since 1994, when United Water entered into a public-private partnership with Hoboken, it has experienced a total of 9 main breaks and 62 service leaks. 
This would average a main break every 1.5 years and 3 service leaks a year.
