Public Works & Utilities

A primary responsibility of the Town’s Public Works Department is maintenance of the Town’s 23 miles streets. Maintenance includes patching and crack sealing, snow plowing, sweeping and signage. The Department also maintains the Town’s parks, the fishing pond, the veterans memorial, Town Hall grounds and other Town-owned properties.

Public Works staff provides utility location services in response to “811” requests. They also do general maintenance on town buildings and equipment.

Water Quality & TTHMs 

Update:  Over three weeks in late June and early July, we performed field activities that have reduced the levels of these compounds in the remote portions of Hudson’s distribution system sufficiently to meet these mandatory requirements. This ensures Hudson’s residents are drinking healthy water and has eliminated the State’s pending administrative action against the Town. It is important to note that the underlying TTHM challenge affected a very small portion of the Town’s population: only a few taps in the most remote reaches of the distribution system. The vast majority of Hudson’s resident taps have not been affected by these water quality concerns.  Please send any questions to info@hudsoncolorado.org or call Town Hall at 303-536-9311.

RIGHT OF WAY USE AND ACCESS PERMITS

A right of way use/access permit application may be obtained from our Permits and Licenses page. Once an Applicant meets the requirements of the Town’s Standards and the Right of Way Use/Access Application has been reviewed and approved by the Town, a permit may be issued.  Trenching, utility work, road work, driveway cuts, culvert installation, boring, or any other work within the right of way requires a permit prior to start of work and may also require a Traffic Control Plan, bonding and insurance.  

Average processing time is 2 business days, so please plan ahead and submit accordingly.  The applicant is required to pay all permit fees prior to permit issuance.  

NO WORK MAY BEGIN UNTIL THE PERMIT IS ISSUED BY TOWN HALL.

CALL 811 BEFORE YOU DIG

Underground utilities can present safety hazards and the potential for service disruption for anyone digging holes. Even when digging holes for tree planting, fence posts, or other small jobs, it is very important to call for utility locates. When you call 811, all utility providers are notified and visit your site to mark locations of their underground facilities, if any. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS SERVICE, and it helps prevent injury and liability.

Be safe. Call 811 at least a few days before you start any digging project. Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hiring a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.
