Resist, Delay, Store, Discharge: a Comprehensive Urban Water Strategy for Hoboken

As part of the Rebuild by Design – competition for “Innovating Together to Create a Resilient Region” the OMA – Royal HaskoningDHV team presented in April 2014 a winning proposal for the Comprehensive Urban Water Strategy for Hoboken. The City of Hoboken is exposed to both tidal surge and urban flash flood. Hoboken’s flood risk cannot be solved one house at a time. It requires a comprehensive strategy; hard infrastructure and soft landscape for coastal defense; a green circuit and water pumps to support drainage; and policy to enable the transformation of the urban fabric.
