Water service interruption

On Thursday, May 23, 2019 at approximately 7:00 PM the Champlain Water District will replace the town's meter vault and associated piping located on the Colchester and Milton town line. This will result in the suspension of water service to nearly 130 customers in Milton for approximately 8 hours. Below is a notice from Champlain Water District and a map detailing the area affected by the shutdown. As of May 15th the Town has mailed notice to customers it believes may be affected by this shutdown but cannot guarantee all affected properties were included in this mailing. Please check the map to determine if your property/household will be included in the shutoff. Questions about water service should be directed to the Champlain Water District at 802-864-7454 or www.champlainwater.org.
