Due to rising global temperatures and climate change, Hoboken is seeing a surge in severe storms and will continue on this pattern. The Federal Emergency Management Agency reported that 79% of Hoboken is in a higher risk flooding zone.
The city of Hoboken is doing a fantastic job at larger-scale protection measures. However, there is still a lack of smaller projects on the individual level or resources for residents to figure out the best preventative measures based on their apartment location. Hoboken is not meeting the need of citizens on the personal level, and HydroSource will help fill that gap.
What it does
HydroSource aims to give additional support to the Hoboken community and dive deep into the real risk of flooding damage. We will give individualized protection recommendations based on the location.
