Champlain Water District customers are being asked to conserve and cut back on water use tomorrow.

The Water District will be going through phase two of a major pipe replacement project.  It means the district treatment facility will be shut down for about 10 hours for the work.  They are replacing and upgrading the piping in their "high pressure line".  Again that shut down is for tomorrow.

"This is our sole treatment plant site.  We always try to phase things in where we can do minor shutdown and just try to keep everything in good working order so that we don't end up with any emergencies ourselves that would limit the supply to the county," said Jim Fay, General Manager of the Champlain Water District.

The Champlain Water District supplies water to about 70 thousand customers in most Chittenden County towns except for Burlington.  They have 15 million gallons of water in storage tanks for use during tomorrow's shutdown.
