Northwest Resiliency Park

Construction continues on the 5-acre Northwest Resiliency Park, which will be New Jersey’s largest resiliency park. The park will have above and below ground infrastructure to withhold up to 2 million gallons of rainwater to help mitigate local flooding.

The contractor will undertake the following activities the week of May 23, 2022, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., subject to weather conditions: 

  • Construct the fountain tank and pile caps
  • Install the structural slab for the terrace

The City uses a combination of low interest and interest-free loans, principal forgiveness for the resiliency features, and grant money to save over $19 million over the life of the project. The Northwest Resiliency Park also utilizes the Open Space Trust Fund to pay for the construction costs of the Northwest Park, and is not utilizing any funding from the 2020 municipal budget.

More information about the Northwest Resiliency Park construction is available at www.hobokennj.gov/nwpark.

Lawn Maintenance in Parks

The City of Hoboken is implementing a lawn care program at Church Square Park and Elysian Park, in partnership with the Friends of Elysian Park. The focus is on improving lawns by building soil health and increasing coverage of resilient grass species. Newly seeded lawn areas at Church Square Park, Elysian Park, Stevens Park, 7th & Jackson Park Field, and Harborside Park will remain fenced off for several weeks while the seed mix germinates and new grass begins to grow.

Please obey park signage to stay out of newly seeded lawn areas.

Removal of Abandoned and Derelict Vessels in Weehawken Cove

The City will continue removing abandoned boats from Weehawken Cove during the week of May 16, 2022. The City’s Contractor, Ken’s Marine Service, will remove the abandoned and derelict vessels from the water and load them onto barges for transport.  

The boat removal is anticipated to take up to four weeks, with completion by the end of May. Boat removal will generally occur between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. but may occur after 6 p.m. on certain days to coordinate certain work activities with the time of high tide. All work will be performed via water. There will be no parking or traffic impacts, and significant noise is not anticipated.  

The project is funded by a $235,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Marine Debris Removal Program. Weehawken Cove has long been utilized as a boat graveyard, littered with over a dozen sunken, derelict, and abandoned boats. The City has proactively removed these sunken vessels in the past whenever they pose an imminent threat to public safety, but now, with the help of this grant funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), all of the boats will be removed.

The 24-month long project will remove the vessels and other marine debris and include a public education campaign to help prevent the future abandonment of marine vessels, create a living shoreline, repair bulkheads within Weehawken Cove, and help restore marine habitats in the Hudson River Estuary. The $552,000 project will be funded by a $235,129 grant from the NOAA and matching funds totaling $316,906, leveraged from the City of Hoboken, NJDEP, HEP, and Riverkeeper. More information about the project is available at www.hobokennj.gov/news/hoboken-secures-grant-funding-for-weehawken-cove-boat-removal-project.

North Hudson Sewerage Authority projects to mitigate flooding in Northwest Hoboken, reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs)

To reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) into the Hudson River and mitigate flooding events in Northwest Hoboken, the North Hudson Sewerage Authority (NHSA), in partnership with the City of Hoboken, is constructing a pumping station and a two-story electrical and mechanical building on the Northwest Resiliency Park (NWRP) site. This, along with associated sewer infrastructure in and around the site, is designed to reduce CSO events in the H6/H7 sewershed in Northwest Hoboken. The project also includes the installation of two advanced hydrodynamic separators, an inlet gravity sewer connection and a portion of a stormwater discharge force main connection to the limits of the resiliency park site.

NHSA will also build a stormwater collection gravity trunk sewer pipeline and appurtenances along 13th Street from Adams Street to Madison Street, and a stormwater force main sewer pipeline and appurtenances along a portion of 13th street from Jefferson Street to Adams Street. Outside of the Northwest Resiliency Park site, the work will include excavation and demolition of existing pipe and structures; and installation of piles and new sewer pipe and precast structures in the roadway of 13th Street between Adams Street and Madison Street.

Project Background:

The Rebuild By Design - Hudson River Project is a comprehensive urban stormwater 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. This portion of construction addresses the separation of stormwater structures from the combined sewer system outside of the Resist structure.

Construction began in May 2021 on the South Work Area of the Rebuild By Design Hudson River Project – Sewer System Modifications Project. Construction in the North Work Area began in July 2021.  This project will consist of a new storm sewer system, with portions of the existing NHSA combined sewer inlets set to be disconnected and manholes to be sealed and lined. Separation of the stormwater system in the exterior areas will prevent tidal surge backflow into the combined system that could cause flooding on the interior side of the line of protection created by the Resist Structure, once constructed. Stormwater collected in the SSM separated area will gravity flow into the Hudson River.  

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.
