Project Timeline


  • Burlington is awarded $67,000 EPA Technical Assistance Grant to explore Integrated Planning
  • Planning & community engagement work 

2017 - 2020

  • Formal Integrated Planning process begins
  • Consultant team headed by HTA leads the project
    • Comprehensive data compilation of all planning efforts and project implementation databases across the City, which could either impact coordinated efforts, or have water quality benefits that should be credited to BTV's pollution reduction goals
    • Development of a city-wide map of all stormwater, and wet-weather implementation opportunities (link coming soon!)
    • Initial technical evaluation of our current phosphorous removal potential, as well as any additional optimization opportunities for our three wastewater treatment facilities
    • Creation of a 'scenario tool' to support evaluation of feasibility and cost-effectiveness of non-structural programs (i,e, street sweeping, leaf pickup, etc.)
    • Evaluation and enhancement of the City's Hydraulic/Hydrologic Model, which allows us to model the sufficiency of our collection system, for detailed scenario planning


  • Clean Water Resiliency Plan (CWRP)
