Hoboken Mayor Proposes 'Universal Solution' To Flooding

Monday, February 25, 2013

In New Jersey, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced a proposal to build seawalls and other mitigation efforts to fortify the city against flooding from future storms. Saltwater inundated low-lying parts of Hoboken for weeks after Hurricane Sandy. Zimmer wants to make Hoboken a test case for low-lying coastal cities like Boston and Philadelphia, but she'll need approval and support from the federal government to do it.
