The City of Hudson is bordered on the north by Lake Mallalieu and the Willow River and bordered by Lake Saint Croix to the west.  Stormwater is not clean water and carries with it pollutants that runoff into the lakes and river and threaten the quality of water and the recreational and economic benefit that they bring.
 
  
The City is doing several items to protect surface waters:
  • The City is a member of Rain to Rivers, which is a consortium of Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) that are regulated  by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR).  The group provides informational and educational programs regarding stormwater runoff and keeping surface waters clean.  Here is a link to the Rain to Rivers website www.raintorivers.org
  • The City is required to submit an annual report regarding the MS4 updates to the WDNR.  A draft of the 2017 annual report is available here for review and comment.
  • The City of Hudson is updating the City ordinances for erosion control, post-construction stormwater management and illicit discharge.  A draft ordinance, Chapter 240 Stormwater Management,has been developed and will be reviewed by the Common Council on March 27th, 2017 where the Council will provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the ordinance during a public hearing.  A copy of the draft ordinance can be found here.  
  • Public Hearing Notice can be found here. Monday, March 27, 2017, 7:00 p.m. 

If you have any comments or questions regarding stormwater management and how we can keep our lakes and rivers clean please contact Tom Zeuli at
