Starting March 23rd, work will begin on the elevated water storage tank located at 109 Front Street in Hudson. The scope of the work will be sandblasting and painting the interior and exterior of the tower. All of the work will be in compliance with OSHA and in coordination with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The village has also coordinated with the Hudson Fire Department for the Fire Department needs during the completion of this project. During the time of this project, the water tower will be offline and portable pressure tanks will be brought in to supply the water to the village. We ask our residents to conserve water where they can as the capacity for water being stored will be diminished. The timeline for this project is March 23rd through July 1st, depending on weather. Thank you for your consideration during this time. If you have concerns or questions, please call Jeff at the Water Department at 726-1471 or you can complete a contact form on the village website.
