HOBOKEN, N.J. – A water main broke in Hoboken early Monday, exactly one week after a water main burst a few blocks away from the current scene.
Monday’s break was reported on Garden Street between First and Second streets, according to Hoboken police. By 3:30 p.m., SUEZ Water tweeted that water service had been restored on Garden Street.
The latest break happened along a stretch that has been plagued by similar incidents.
On March 14, a water main burst about three blocks away on First Street between Clinton Street and Willow Avenue, according the city. In that case, a sinkhole formed – swallowing a car parked along the side of the road – and residents near the site were told to boil their water as a precaution. It was about two days before their full water service was restored, SUEZ Water North Jersey said.
Multiple water main breaks disrupted life in that portion of Hoboken last fall.
