High performing pumps save low-lying city.
Hoboken, New Jersey, had struggled with flooding for generations. Fortunately, by the time Hurricane Sandy
hit in 2012, the city had upgraded its stormwater pump station with reliable Flygt submersible propeller
pumps capable of discharging 50 million gallons per day (MGD). According to NHSA Executive Director
Dr. Richard J. Wolff, “the inundated streets in the southwest portion of the city were cleared of water
within 48 hours, at least half the time that it would have taken without the wet-weather pumping station.”
