After several residents reported a noxious odor coming from the environmental remediation site located at 800 Monroe St. in Hoboken the city has begun to work with the contractor and the appropriate enforcement agencies to fix the issue.
According to a press release from the city, on Wednesday, Oct. 3, the contractor was to begin corrective action to abate the odor, which includes adding a concrete barrier and odor controlling foam over the remediation area. The contractor will also cease all odor-producing remediation activities until the odor fully dissipates.
“The City of Hoboken Fire Department, Board of Health, Hudson Regional Health Commission, and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) have all tested the air and found all levels to be within the acceptable range,” states a press release from the city which added that it is still creating an unacceptable quality of life condition.
According to the release, the odor is not hazardous and possesses no danger to public health and safety.
