HUDSON, OH (February 27, 2020) – At the February 25, 2020 City Council Workshop, City Engineer Brad Kosco presented an update on the City of Hudson’s upcoming storm water projects that will provide more than $9 million in improvements to Hudson’s storm water system over the next five years. These storm water projects will provide better flood control, water quality, and long-term maintenance improvements to Hudson’s storm water system and will positively affect storm water management throughout the City.

The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) partners with member communities in the Cuyahoga River watershed to address storm water-related problems. The City has partnered with the NEORSD on the upcoming major projects at Barlow Community Center Lakes and the Owen Brown Street Bridge Replacement Project.
In addition to major construction projects, the City of Hudson has an aggressive storm water maintenance program to continuously provide residents with the best storm water system possible. The maintenance program includes the care and inspection of 133 miles of storm sewers and culverts; more than 5,300 catch basins; and more than 100 miles of streams, ditches, and creeks.
