Hudson Public Utilities will be conducting hydrant flushing and hydrant maintenance over the next few weeks throughout the city starting in September 2023.
You may notice slightly yellow, orange, or brown-colored water coming from your faucet. If this happens, simply run your cold water tap for three to five minutes. If the water is still discolored, wait about 30 minutes, and run the water again. This temporary discoloration only affects the appearance of the water – it does not cause a health or safety risk.
You should avoid washing laundry when hydrants are flushed in your area, as the flushed sediment could discolor white clothing. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, then wash a load of dark clothes first. You should also avoid using hot water until the cold water runs clear.
For any questions or concerns, please contact Hudson Public Utilities at 715-386-4760.
