Bright St and Center St same sewage problems. On Jan 9 we had a lake of raw sewage which closed exit from the turnpike. I already gave up on the city.

Same here. I've been trying to set up a meeting with Candace's office for a while now to talk about these issues with no luck.

Wondering if anything has ever come of Candice Osbourne's flooding survey/study. We are in the vicinity of Monmouth and Bright and still experience sewage backing up and flooding into our basement 2-3 times a year.

Althea...

My HOA has corresponded with you. I assume Candice is aware of the disaster that is Marin under the NJT and HBLR tracks when it rains heavily...

Link to article about Hoboken's sensor system:

Interestingly, it sounds like a resident brought the technology to the attention of Zimmer. Maybe someone can do the same in JC ?

The pumps without a doubt helped during the 5 inch rainfall Friday, especially at high tide when the problems usually occur.

Everyone I spoke with in the York / Grand area with histories of flooded properties said the same thing.

ye, that's right, Candice (who lives in the flood zone) is completely clueless as to the flooding issues that she has been helping find solutions for for over a year. OH DEAR!!!! Why did you guys elect her.

The survey was more of a work in progress, but the tracking is more about tracking flooding since the temporary pumps were placed at the foot of York Street on Friday right before the storm.

The York street area homes get flooded with 1 1/2" of rainfall. It's horrible. This last storm brought just over 5" of rain and they either had just a little flooding or none.

SO really the survey is unscientific and I am sure Candice would love feedback on how it can be made better, but it is really to gauge whether the improvements being put in place are actually improving the situation.

Obviously Candice is a newbie - Flooding and sewers has been an issue for years in JC.

Here we go again - years of debate, research and other crap, but getting the problem fixed.

I agree Brewster - JC is so far behind on this. We don't really know what happens, never mind figure out the best ways to tackle the problem.

I think this is a good start, but there should be a storm / date option that you can fill out for each incident rather than apparently having to send a separate survey out every time.

I think taking this a step forward would be installing some kind of sensor system to track how much water is flowing into the storm drains. This way they could correlate total aggregate rainfall with what drains are experiencing the highest inflow of water.


If Fulop can build a relationship with Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, we can benefit from their experience in this. Under her they are several years ahead of us in taking flooding seriously, and had a prototype sewer sensor system installed there.

This survey sounds like something that might be better done door to door.

On the form it asks several times how high we flooded. It's a kind of foolish question for the many (majority?) of us who have sump pumps effective for events more moderate than Sandy or Irene. I can't keep my basement dry, but I can keep the water from rising. I'd have had several feet if I didn't pump, the cracks in my slab were squirting 6" in the air!

I'm not sure I understand the heat map comment, but some forensic work on where EXACTLY got street flooding may be extremely important, the FEMA maps being published that affect insurance are demonstrably wrong in many areas.

I received the following from Candice and it is a very good idea to start gathering this data directly from the mouths of the constituents to match them to the weather patterns over time. I know Jersey City Sandy Recovery is in the process of creating a heat map to share with the JC OEM to get a broader picture of who was affected, but this will track the affects of strong rain events and the effectiveness of flood mitigation initiatives.

I know that flooding is a constant issue in downtown Jersey City and I would like to begin tracking what happens after major rainfall events. If you, or someone you know, regularly experiences flooding in Jersey City, can you please have them fill out this survey? It is very important that we have data to help us understand exactly what is going on, what projects are working, etc.

From Candice:

1) High Level results of Andrea:

Per the National Weather Service (JFK & Newark), it seems we had just under 4 inches of rain in 24 hours.
The peak was 0.5" in a hour during high tide
See the attached image so you can see a graph of the distribution of rain.


2) Your summary of what happened:

I need your help! I would like to track performance of our sewers in the next several months, so I have created a survey that I really would appreciate if if you could complete it. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NFR3GW2
