2013 Report on Hoboken Flooding Issue and Infiltration in West New York
This report, undertaken by Emnet for the Authority and issued in December 2013, analyzes the hydraulics of the Hoboken flooding issue and flood abatement options, as well as the identification of water infiltration in Union City and West New York. The report discusses the effectiveness of the H-1 wet weather pump station, concluding that it “has significantly improved the flooding situation.” Several flood abatement options for Hoboken were explored, and the analysis revealed that, at a minimum, an additional wet weather pump station is needed in the H5 area between 10th and 11th Streets. The report also discusses the high levels of dry weather water infiltration in the Union City and West New York portions of the Authority’s service area. This water infiltration, which likely comes from water main leaks and breaks, negatively impacts treatment goals at the West New York treatment plant.
