Smell In Manville - My9 New Jersey

Smell In Manville

Posted: Updated:
Manville, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Manville, New Jersey has been put through devastation by floods due to hurricanes and never having the opportunity to fully recover.

The residential area has suffered a potent smell, called which started fourteen years ago when Hurricane Floyd hit the area.  Although the town is in Central New Jersey, they too were hit extremely hard by Superstom Sandy.

Manville Mayor, Anthony Carradino, said that many people have started to take out second mortgages and refinance their homes because residents needed extra money, but once the market crashed, the value of the homes went down in numbers. Currently, there are about thirty homes that have been left vacant since Superstorm Sandy which hit last fall.

Mary Jane Anspach, is a proud Manville resident who has stayed put for many years even after the property worth has decreased due to all the flooding.  She said, “This has been four times we’ve been flooded, do we say, heck with it and let the mortgage go into foreclosure? Because at this point, the house isn’t worth what we paid for it.” 

Although the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers has been conducting a study on this residential area, the neighborhood is continuously flooding and there has’t been nearly as much help or attention focused on it like there has been for the Jersey Shore.
