The Past & Future of Hoboken’s Water

Hoboken Water Services is a public-private partnership between the city of Hoboken and United Water, one of the nation’s leading water services companies. Starting in 1994, the city of Hoboken and Veolia Water entered into an agreement which set the standard for public-private partnerships. As a result, city residents have seen improved water quality and service and stabilized water rates.

Under the terms of the partnership, the city retains ownership of the water infrastructure and retains rate-setting responsibility. Veolia manages the city’s water distribution system as well as customer service and billing and collections.

Almost 33,000 people in the Hoboken depend upon us for safe, clean water.
