Customers throughout Hoboken may experience discolored water or low pressure as we investigate and isolate the leak. The water remains safe, however, customers may prefer to wait until it runs clear before using it for drinking or washing clothes.

In preparation for the fall 2015 tree planting, the City of Hoboken’s Shade Tree Commission is seeking property owners who would like a tree planted in the sidewalk adjacent to their building and who will agree to care for and water the tree. Qualifying property owners can have a street tree planted in exchange for a suggested $100 contribution towards planting costs and a pledge to keep the tree well-watered.
Property owners who would like a tree planted in a sidewalk tree well in front of their home should complete the online request form at www.hobokennj.org/boards/stc/treerequest. Requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to available funding.
Each location requested will be surveyed by a professional from the Department of Environmental Services to ensure there are no conflicts with the surrounding infrastructure and that the site is a suitable one for a tree to grow and thrive.
Requests can be made for existing empty tree beds as well as paved sidewalk locations. If a tree well does not exist, one will be opened. Trees will not be planted on private property; only in sidewalk tree wells.
Trees are only planted during our two planting seasons: Spring (March 1 to May 31) and fall (October 1 to December 31). The next anticipated planting will take place in October or November, 2015.More >
