12-Inch Water Main Break Floods Hoboken Streets

New Jersey drivers endured a wet commute after a water main break flooded the streets in Hoboken early Thursday morning.

Buses and cars trekked through a giant puddle caused by the 12-inch break near Willow Avenue and 16th Street at around 4:30 a.m. Traffic continued to move through the area with delays as water drained into the sewers. 

Crews and contractors from Suez New Jersey are working to ease water pressure to determine the cause of the break, a representative from the water and waste recycling services company said. The company did not say when it expected the break would be fixed.

Though water on the street level has subsisded considerably since this morning, a nearby dialysis center is experiencing lower water pressure as a result of the break.

The quality of the water has not been affected and is still safe to drink.
