What is Stormwater? 

Stormwater is clean water from rain. The water "runs-off" hard surfaces such as homes, streets, parking lots or dry ground and into a stormwater drainage system. The stormwater travels to the nearest water basin such as a lake, pond, retention pond, detention pond, stream or river and provides fresh water for drinking, wildlife and fish and recreational activities. For this reason, it is important to keep our lakes and rivers clean.

National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)

In compliance with the provisions of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and the Ohio Water Pollution Control Act, the City is required to submit an annual report to the Ohio Environments Protection Agency. The annual NPDES report is available upon request by contacting the Public Works Department.

Brandywine Creek Balanced Growth Plan

Brandywine Creek is a tributary to the Cuyahoga River. From its headwaters in Hudson, it flows westward for 11 miles and joins the Cuyahoga River in Sagamore Hills within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. What happens upstream can have serious effects on what is currently one of the highest quality stretches of the Cuyahoga River's main stem.

Since the watershed is experiencing around a 10% urbanization increase each year, it is even more important to have a plan to maintain the water quality and natural features of the creek. Consequently, the Brandywine Creek Balanced Growth Plan was developed. Click here for the full plan.

Storm Water Educational Information

While Hudson is embarking on an aggressive storm water management action plan, there is much that citizens can also do to help keep our waters clean. Our 2018 program theme is "On the Road to Clean Water". This year the City will provide information to promote cleaning up transportation fluids and keeping chemicals off the roads.
