Where Does the City of Hudson Water Come From?

  The water for Hudson water customers comes from five underground wells. In general, there is a great deal more consistency in water quality readings with ground well water resources as opposed to surface water resources, such as from lakes or streams.

Hudson Water Quality

The City of Hudson owns and operates its own water treatment plant that ensures safe, potable water is delivered to its customers. 
The City of Hudson Water Resources Department performs a wide range of water testing at varying frequencies which are required and regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The City's current program requires testing be performed for lead and copper at a frequency of every three years. This particular testing is performed and results are analyzed by a licensed third party laboratory. All testing results are published in the City's EPA Annual Water Quality Report which can be reviewed HERE.

The water quality report shows the EPA regulation for lead compared to the test reading for the water. This reading has always been consistently within or below the required minimums. We regularly test for water quality, ensuring safe drinking water to all of the City of Hudson Water customers. 

Hudson Water Department History

The City's first water plant was located on Oviatt Street, and the water source was from nearby underground wells. Mr. James W. Ellsworth was the driving force and main financial backer of this initial system. It operated from 1912 until 1969, when the water plant moved to its present site on West Streetsboro Street. Today, Hudson's Water Resources Department operates five underground wells and operates its water own water treatment plant to provide safe drinking water to its approximately 2,300 customers.
