Water Service Line Inventory Project

Burlington Water Resources is working with the State of Vermont and the Environmental Protection Agency on a nationwide requirement to identify and remove potential sources of lead from public drinking water.  As part of this requirement, we are required to confirm or identify the materials of every water service line in the City.  The City has no record of active lead service lines and does not expect to find any lead lines.   This inventory is also great opportunity for us to identify service lines and components that may need replacement to maintain high water quality and water pressure.  

The scale of this project is massive and we need your help to complete the inventory on time.  We are asking the public to "pipe up" and participate by completing the survey link below.  There will be monthly gift card raffles beginning in January 2024 for completed survey responses!
