New Jersey’s second most densely populated county, Essex County has a diverse spectrum of land-use types, with its urban eastern half and more suburban, affluent western half. It’s also home to three of the most important transportation centers in the eastern United States: Newark Liberty International Airport, Penn Station and Port Newark. Along with thousands of miles of state roads, interstate highways and local streets, this creates plenty of nonporous surfaces that prevent rainwater from seeping into the ground. This means the rainwater has to find a place to settle. Most often, this is in parks, medial strips… and private property. Basement waterproofing has never been so important.
