UPDATE: City and Village Ban Now Allows for Odd/Even Watering
Restrictions have been placed on the watering of lawns and gardens in the City of Hudson and the Village of North Hudson because of limited well capacity. The restrictions could last through July 9.
The City of Hudson Water Director has issued emergency watering restrictions to be in place until early next week (possibly until July 9th). Please view the complete notice, below. One of the water system wells is currently not operating, and another is being tested, so water production is very limited at this time. All residents of the City and the Village are asked to comply with the watering restrictions at this time.
The following LEVEL 1 watering ban restriction per Hudson City code will be in place until further notice:
C. Water Use restrictions
(1) Level 1 water use restrictions shall be as follows:
(a) Watering allowed using sprinklers or irrigation systems for even addresses on even dates and odd addresses on odd dates between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Irrigation systems that encompass both an even and odd address shall operate every other day.
(b) Watering allowed on new lawns (seed or sod) any day between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
(c) No watering of hard surfaces (i.e., streets, sidewalks, and driveways) that causes water to run into gutter as the result of poorly maintained sprinklers or an unattended hose.
(d) No watering during precipitation.
