Community Update on Environmental Conditions/Odor at 800 Monroe Street

As many have experienced, an environmental remediation site located at 800 Monroe Street has been releasing a noxious odor into the air. In response, the City of Hoboken Fire Department, Board of Health, Hudson Regional Health Commission, and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) have all tested the air and found all levels to be within the acceptable range.

Notwithstanding this fact, the odor emanating from the site is noxious and creating a completely unacceptable quality of life condition. Accordingly, the City of Hoboken is working actively with all relevant parties to eliminate this problem as soon as possible.

It is important to emphasize that the odor is not hazardous and poses no danger to public health and safety.

Further information about the corrective action will be released in the coming days, when approved by NJDEP. The City will also be coordinating a community meeting with the Licensed Site Remediation Professional responsible for the project. A date and time will be announced shortly.
