[ARCHIVED] Burlington Hydrant Flushing Begins

The Burlington Municipal Waterworks will begin flushing all fire hydrants the week of September 12th, 2016 and will continue for the next 5-6 weeks. During this time residents may experience temporary low pressures or discolored water. If discolored water is experienced, the Waterworks suggests residents let their cold water run in a sink or bathtub, capable of draining the flow, for up to 20 minutes. If the problem still persists, please notify the Waterworks Office at 754-6501, or after hours, notify the Water Treatment Plant at 752-7611. For those customer with a water meter, letting the water run will increase the amount of your bill. Additionally, customers may notice a slight chlorine odor as the Waterworks will be disinfecting with free chlorine during the flushing process and returning to chloramines for disinfecting when finished.
