Water Quality Preventative Maintenance Program

In a continuing effort to improve water quality, Burlington will conduct a routine Water Quality Preventative Maintenance Program beginning on April 14, 2014 and ending May 11, 2014.

This process will involve a temporary switch from present chloramines to chlorine in order to optimize water quality in our distribution systems.  The water will continue to meet Federal and State standards for drinking water and is safe for consumption and use.

What should I expect?

During the switch, some users may notice temporary color, taste, and odor differences.  This is a normal part of the process and customers should be reassured that water quality will not be affected.  It is recommended that customers continue to remove chloramines and chlorine from water prior to use in the kidney dialysis process, fish aquariums and ponds, and with some types of manufacturing practices.  Customers are advised to seek professional advice concerning the removal methods for chlorine and chloramines.
