Boil Water Notice Is Lifted

Samples Confirm Water Safe to Drink

Burlington, VT – The boil water notice, issued 1/29/2022, in a limited area of the New North End is lifted. Sample results have confirmed that it is safe to use the water. There are no active boil water advisories. Outside of the special sampling taken to lift the advisory, drinking water is also tested throughout the day at the drinking water plant and weekly throughout the distribution system. 


1/29/22City of Burlington Drinking Water Warning 

Due to a water main break at Shore/Dale we will be issuing a boil-water advisory for those households whose water has now been shut off. This will impact customers on Shore Road (south-west of Dale), Dale Road (east of Shore), Stirling Place (house numbers <60), Crescent Beach, Ridgewood Drive, and Surf Road.  

We are working to repair the main and restore water to the area before the end of the day.  While we will be flushing the area heavily to bring fresh water into the area, you will need to boil your water until sampling confirms there has been no contamination.  This could be as early as Sunday night or potentially as late as Tuesday morning depending on the availability of certified laboratory analysis. We will send a VT-alert and update our website when you no longer need to boil water. Once water is restored please flush your cold water until clear.

If you used water prior to it being shut off, we maintained positive pressure in the line so there has been no contamination to your water supply. If your water was not shut off, you do not need to boil your water.
