Second 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. The City of Hoboken is working together with the contractor and the appropriate enforcement agencies to abate this issue as quickly as possible.

On Wednesday, the contractor will begin corrective action to abate the odor. Corrective action includes adding a concrete barrier and odor controlling foam over the remediation area. The contractor will also cease all odor-producing remediation activities until the odor fully dissipates.

The City will continue to monitor the corrective action and keep the community informed with any updates.

If you have any questions, please call the Hoboken Health Department at (201) 420-2000 x5205.
