Project Background

The Rebuild By Design - Hudson River Project is a comprehensive urban storm water management program that takes a multi-faceted approach intended to address flooding from both major storm surge and high tide as well as from heavy rainfall events. These events often occur individually, but can also occur together, increasing their impacts. The program includes four components: Resist, Delay, Store and Discharge.  

The NJDEP is implementing the Resist component of the project concept, while the City of Hoboken has and continues to lead efforts implementing the Delay, Store and Discharge components. This portion of construction is Phase II of the Resist component. Phase I included implementation of Sewer System Modifications (SSM) and was completed in July 2022. Phase II will include the construction of the Resist Alignment, a floodwall and levee system aimed to protect the Project Area from coastal flooding threats associated with storm surge. Construction for Phase II is beginning with the current test pitting work being described above.  

This United States Department of Housing and Urban Development is funding the project, allocating $230 million to the overall Rebuild by Design Hudson River Project. Additional funding has been allocated to this project through the FEMA Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities grant program and through an American Rescue Plan Covid State Fiscal Recovery Funding allocation.

Veolia Routine Water Infrastructure Maintenance and Outage Alerts

The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA) is conducting maintenance along its Aqueduct that supplies drinking water to the City.

The aqueduct feeds into the Veolia-managed water system serving the residents of Jersey City and Hoboken. Veolia will be taking significant steps to mitigate the impacts of these necessary infrastructure upgrades. These impacts include the possibility of minor water discoloration due to stirring up of any sediment within the system.

Veolia will be working in conjunction with JCMUA to carefully monitor the water system throughout these repairs, flushing water mains when necessary, in an effort to minimize discoloration and stabilize water pressure. Should customers encounter discolored water in their home or business, simply flush cold water taps until the water runs clear and resume normal use.  

A water shutdown is scheduled on River Street from 2nd Street to 3rd Street on Monday, February 26, 2024 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. for valve replacement work.
