Peter Cunningham led the successful fight for a new flood pump, which will help relieve flooding in our area. Funded by a low interest loan, the $11.7 million wet weather pump will be installed underneath 11th Street, a little west of Frank Sinatra Drive. This is Hoboken’s second flood pump. The first one is located on Observer Highway, and was installed in 2012.
Peter Cunningham said, “This new flood pump is an important step towards alleviating the major flooding problems faced by our residents and businesses whenever we have a serious rainstorm.” As our Councilman, Cunningham has consistently supported measures to address Hoboken’s difficult flooding problem.
