The Town of Burlington’s goal is to produce the highest quality drinking water for all its customers.
The Vinebrook Treatment Plant
To maintain our commitment to you, we routinely collect and test water samples every step of the way, from the source waters right to your home, checking for purity and identifying potential problems. A yearly Water Quality report is produced and sent to all residents in the town of Burlington, this report is also available at several locations through out the town. You may pick up a copy at the Vine Brook Water Treatment Plant on Middlesex Turnpike, the Town Hall or the Library.
Where does my water come from?
The Town of Burlington’s drinking water system contains two separate water treatment plants drawing water from both surface and ground water sources. The Mill Pond Water Treatment Plant treats water from the Mill Pond reservoir. The Mill Pond Treatment Plant has the capacity to treat up to 6 million gallons of water per day. The Vine Brook Water Treatment Plant(above) treats water from seven ground wells located with in the Vine Brook Aquifer. The Vine Brook Water Treatment Plant has the capacity to treat 3.3 million gallons of water per day.
Both plants filter and clarify the water to remove contaminants, and provide fluoridation, corrosion control and disinfections.
We are located at 171 Middlesex Turnpike, just around the corner from the Fire Department on Terrace Hall.
