MAIN WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT RELEASE OF PARTIALLY DISINFECTED OUTFLOW
INFORMATIONAL RELEASE – APRIL 6, 2017:  Heavy rains last weekend combined with atypical wastewater entering the plant stressed its biological and chemical systems.  As a result, approximately 3.5 million gallons of treated but not fully disinfected outflow left the plant.  A large component of this outflow was stormwater as the plant serves a portion of the City which has combined sewers that capture both sewage and stormwater runoff.  We have developed a full update so that the public is well informed on the incident, what action steps have been taken, and the Department’s ongoing commitment to stewarding the City’s treasured water resources.  Click here to read the update.

DRIVEWAY ENCROACHMENT PARKING PROHIBITION
The Driveway Encroachment Prohibition was adopted by the Public Works Commission on September 21st 2016 and will take effect on October 19th 2016.  This prohibition will make it a ticket-able offense to park within two feet of all driveways in Burlington.  A blocked or encroached driveway often makes it difficult or impossible to either enter or exit, inhibits access to homes, or traps residents on their property.  This prohibition was sought by the Department of Public Works in response to numerous repeated complaints from the public.  This is a perennial issue that will not be assuaged without this new prohibition.  Click here for more info.

It is our goal that everyone living, working or attending school in Burlington will learn to utilize on-street parking efficiently without adversely affecting others.
