Her lovely lady H-5 pump


Doesn't that H-5 pump make you want to blast some Black Eyed Peas and belt out that "My Pump" song? 

If you live in Northwest Hoboken, you sure felt dry last night. I mean...
Whatcha gonna do with all that junk
All that junk inside your trunk 
...if your trunk got flooded?

With your junk inside?

Thanks to the North Hudson Sewerage Authority and Mayor Zimmer, last night your trunk stayed dry...

This is what it looked like last night in the ShopRite neighborhood, during the storm at high tide:


Everybody's junk stayed nice and dry!

See what I  mean?


Kinda makes you want to sing, don't it?

  1. I live a block up from ShopRite. Before the pump came online everytime it rained hard same story, a couple inches of water at least. I can't believe the difference. Thank you mayor.

    3. When the first pump was built, Zimmer, then a city councilwoman, said four pumps were necessary to protect the city.

      "It is possible that we'll only need two pumps," she said today. "We know we definitely need a second pump."

    4. lol, thank you Team Moron. Yeah, 8:03- I read the link but yOU didn't. No biscuit for you!

      "It will be the second pump station installed in Hoboken, Mayor Dawn Zimmer said.

      The pump (H5) will be built on the north end of Hoboken near 11th Street and Frank Sinatra Drive North, Zimmer said, adding that a start date for the project is unknown.

    5. "As many of you know Kim Glatt’s campaign put out a press release yesterday claiming Dawn Zimmer for not seizing on the opportunity to get a grant for a second pump to alleviate the flooding situation. Below is Dawn’s response and the technical recommendations behind Dawn’s executive decision not to pursue the grants at this time.

      Mayor Zimmer Advocates Cost-Effective Approach to Hoboken’s Flooding Issue

      “We are making significant progress in addressing our flooding problem. The critical Southeastern flood pump – by far the most important – is moving forward at no cost to the City. Last night, the City Council took the important step of encouraging the North Hudson Sewerage Authority to implement the state-of-the-art wireless technology that I have long advocated in order to monitor and better target our flood prevention efforts. EmNet LLC conducted an on site inspection of Hoboken’s sewerage system last year and reviewed engineering models. They estimated that the Southeastern pump combined with additional solutions that could be implemented inexpensively could solve 80 percent of our flooding problem.

      With respect to the remaining 20 percent of the problem, EmNet’s data may also provide us with information we need to proceed with a more cost-effective solution than the current 4-pump plan. This could save Hoboken taxpayers millions and enable us to develop a complete solution that reduces combined sewage overflows into the Hudson River. The three additional pumps proposed under the current plan are to be paid for entirely by the City of Hoboken at an estimated cost of approximately $30 million. While grants could be obtained to cover some of this cost, Hoboken’s investment will remain substantial. Before I commit to an initial $2 million for a project that could ultimately cost the Hoboken taxpayers as much as $20 to $30 million, I want to make sure that the expenditure is really needed. As currently designed the proposed pump system will be pumping Hoboken sewerage into the Hudson during high tide flood events. Anticipated stricter enforcement of the Clean Water Act will likely result in a need to modify the current pump plan at significant additional cost in order to comply with the law. EmNet’s technology can provide us with the information that we need to craft a longer term, more cost effective and more environmentally friendly solution.”

    6. Exactly what I said, dumbass. Your 2009 article proves what I said- Emmet was tried in Hoboken first. I believe Tony Soares advocated for Emmet technology as well.

    1. Your link is dead like your brain. That DEAD link is from 2009. You talking about Emnet? The Emnet sensors got washed away by Sandy in 2012. Zimmer advocated for the 2nd pump after Sandy. The article is from 2014. DUUUUUH.

    2. Giant Puppets can delete posts but Screen captures will be in mailboxes
      Zimmer was AGAINST a 2nd, 3rd and 4th pump but then again she was also against Dave Roberts until he attended her darkside fundraiser last week. Did GA mark the in-kind free ticket yet to ELEC- we all know she didn't buy a $300 ticket to hang with the HCDO's new Pet ?

      Delete
    3. But she thought Emnet was great until the the engineers and state leaders told her poop tomatoes and sewer sensors didn't work.

      It took her years to admit we need 4 pumps.

    4. Ah, bullshit 8:24 and 8:26. You're so jealous at Zimmer's success you can't stand it. You can still run with Mike, can't you? Unless he realized what a giant pain in the ass you are and difficult to deal with. Maybe you can find a candidate who enjoys being screamed at?

  4. Nobody cares what happened in 2009. They care that it's 2017 and their streets aren't flooding everytime it rains. Thank you, Mayor Zimmer!

  5. Who in the fuck is this moronic idiot that keeps blathering about the Mayor only wanting one pump? This has to be at the top of the list of Hoboken political stupid talking points. The intellectually challenged rabbit dropping belongs on O'Reilly's No Spin Zone. Shit For Brians (from now on SFB) is making about as much sense as Bill the Perv did. Who the fuck cares? There are two pumps (love the reference to Fergie, GA) and they are working. And they were brought on board while the Lady with the Hump was Mayor. End of story. Keep humping, Mayor. SFB is the kind of loser that couldnt get laid in a monkey house with a bag of bananas slung over his shoulder. Get lost, chump.

    1. It's what passes for an issue with Team Defusco. Goes well with trying to portray Zimmer as hostile to gay rights.

      And let's not forget the doofus who lobs "lesbian" around as an insult when he gets mad (or drunk). Just what "Hudson County's first open gay elected official" needs from his noisy but comically out-of-touch internet troops.

    2. As usual, the dark side has a problem with the truth. Not surprising.

    3. I think SFB is actually quite smart so the acronym doesn't really fit. He lives for politics and power and since so many people (everyone except DeFusco) see through his act, he is politically almost dead and trying desperately to survive.

      So he is "lyin to survive" leading to the acronym LTS which I will use for him going forward. It could also stand for "livin to spin." Disclaimer: Any other perceived meaning is purely coincidental.

  7. Zimmer was convinced to do the 2nd pump based on EmNet's results. It's fine she studied the issue and changed her mind,that's what she's supposed to do. But one can not deny she was worried about sending more poop into the Hudson when Roberts proposed 3-4 pumps. It's written into history. It's all good. Mayors should all live and learn. EmNet is a data collection system, that according to the NHSA is also used in west NY now http://www.nj.com/hobokennow/index.ssf/2008/12/building_a_better_pump_to_solv.html

    1. All the links provided here actually confirm that Zimmer never said we only needed one pump, thus she never "changed her mind" though I certainly agree that the willingness to reconsider when appropriate is an asset the Mayor possesses.

      The lies are getting tiresome. Zimmer said we should use EMNET to gather data so we could create a better plan incorporating the right number of pumps. That's precisely what she proceeded to do and the original plan has in fact been modified in part thanks to the EMNET data, which NHSA has used system-wide, as well as because of Sandy and the opportunities created by our new resiliency parks.

      LTS needs to lie about this and many other things because giving the Mayor her due on this and other issues leaves Mr. DeFusco with basically nothing to run on except his raw ambition and his deeply held belief that the best way to move the City forward is to give developers whatever they want in exchange for a few "cool" seeming givebacks. Been there/done that and the voters, old and new, do not want to go back to those days. Hence the need to constantly lie.

  8. Good Christ who cares what was said or not said in 2008/2009? The end result is the mayor got a 2nd pump in and an area that desperately needed help no longer floods. YAY

    Anyone on this site shilling for Defusco is a moron. It doesn't work on a site like this.

    1. Not only doesn't work but has the opposite affect, making the candidate look dumber than he probably is and beholden to people no one would trust. If Zimmer were an evil genius she could do no better than hire these clowns who imagine they are "helping" Defusco.

      Delete
    2. You're right. She couldn't do better for herself than to hire people to "support Mike" in this manner. HA. The thing is, she doesn't have to b/c these idiots are out there "helping him."

      And recall, I'm not a "zimmer zealot" by any stretch. But since her competition is hardly competitive with her, she's the only person to vote for. It's a no brainer.

  9. 500 Hoboken residents will take to the streets on Saturday !

    The City has organized a city wide spring cleaning day (Spring Fling) and 500 hundred people have volunteered up to put a little more polish on our little city.

    I LOVE HOBOKEN.
