Because of the water outage in Weatherford, city residents are being asked to boil water for consumption until further notice. Hudson Oaks, however, has determined that its water is safe to drink, although some water restrictions remain in effect.
City Administrator Sheri Campbell-Husband issued the following statement Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 3:
Thanks to Hudson Oaks water customers’ compliance with Stage 3 restrictions the City’s water system has stabilized without having to draw surface water from Weatherford. The City of Hudson Oaks wants its water customers to know that Hudson Oaks water is safe to use for all domestic purposes, including consumption, without boiling the water.
The City does still have some related water restrictions in place. The use of lawn irrigation systems is still prohibited, as is all non‐essential outdoor water use.
Beginning this evening, however, water customers may hand water foundations, trees, shrubs, and new plantings between 7 and 11 p.m.
City water crews will shut off water service if a customer is using an irrigation system, or if a customer is hand watering during hours other than 7‐11 p.m. If water service is disconnected, the customer may contact the City and service will be reconnected.
Questions regarding this situation should be directed to City Hall at 682‐229‐2400 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Calling that same number after business hours will provide customers with an on‐call number for City staff working to reconnect water meters.
