Burlington Water Resources - Rates, Fees and Affordability Programs Project
Tell us about your experience with this online video, click here.
Burlington's Water Resources Division is proud to provide many essential services, including the production and distribution of clean, safe drinking water to our residents and businesses. In July of 2019, the Water Resources Division began a comprehensive effort to ensure that our utility had sustainable funding to maintain and enhance our high-quality level of service.
The two primary goals of this proposal are equity and affordability.
Sustainable funding is crucial to ensuring access to clean water. Burlington's water infrastructure requires ongoing maintenance, repairs, and generational upgrades to produce and distribute clean water to our users. However, access to the essential water needed to live can be jeopardized when utility costs become unaffordable.
In 2021, Burlington's Water Resources Division will be proposing a final plan that allows their robust operations and continued long term capital improvements to flourish. The current proposal aims to provide equitable costs based on user demand, and expand and enhance affordability programs for our users.
This webinar is an Open House for the public comment on the project.
