Paving will begin on Monday, November 13, 2017. Lazaro Paving Company will be laying down the top asphalt layer on Manning St. starting from Main St. side at 7:00 am. All the road paving should be completed in one day.
Expect delays and pay attention to the crews and police officers on site. While paving occurs in front of your house, you will not be able to enter or exit your driveway.
The asphalt (top layer) has to dry for about an hour and cannot allow passage of vehicular traffic until dry.

The Town of Hudson DPW began hydrant flushing on Monday, October 2nd and will continue until completion. Crews will work from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Crews will start on Chestnut Street and will work their way across the town, weather permitting.
Hydrant flushing is essential to maintaining healthy and clean drinking water for our residents. The flushing process clears sediment and mineral deposits and buildups from water main pipes. It is also essential for many public safety reasons – it serves as quality assurance that all the hydrants are working as necessary, and it ensures that there will be proper water pressure for firefighting.
Potential Side Effects
While we are flushing the hydrants, you may notice that your water may become discolored. Don’t panic! The discolored water does not pose an actual health risk; it is just a discoloration due to mineral sediments flushing through the hydrants. To resolve, run all the cold water faucets in your house for about 10 minutes until the water runs clear.
You may experience low water pressure while the hydrants are flushing. This is strictly short term and will subside when we finish flushing.
If you continue to experience low water pressure or discolored water, or if you have any questions, call the office. Continue to check this webpage for updates as we continue flushing.
Please be cautious and courteous of our crews working alongside the streets. If you experience dirty water, run your cold water faucets for about 10 minutes. If symptoms persist, call the Hudson DPW at 978-562-9333. (after hours - call the Police Department at 978-562-7122)

BUYING OR SELLING A HOME IN HUDSON?
If you are selling your home in Hudson, you are required to call the Department of Public Works to request your final water and sewer reading. You must call at least 5 - 10 business days before the closing and provide us with the address of the house, the closing date, and the buyer's name(s), as reads on the purchase and sales agreement. This will allow us to roll the water and sewer over into their name, and a final bill will not be excecuted without the new owner's name(s). We will also need to schedule a time for your water meter to be changed. This will be of no cost to the buyers or sellers, but we will need somebody to be home to let us into the house. The current meter must be in an unobstructed area, meaning it cannot be hidden in a wall or hidden by furniture - we will not be responsible for clearing the
area. The meter takes about an hour to be installed and water usage will not be available while the meter is changed. For any questions regarding this process, please call Ann at 978-562-9333, extension 319.
