Residents who have lawn sprinkler systems should have their systems turned off, and winterized before the freezing weather arrives. This will eliminate damage to your system and help prevent water loss due to leaks. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
* If you see anyone utilizing a fire hydrant, please contact the Public Works Main Office at 609-239-5909, or the Police Department at 609-386-1000. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. *
Water Meter Upgrades Burlington Township is in the process of replacing the existing water meters with radio read type meters at no cost to the homeowner. The new radio read system will allow our personnel to read the meters faster. This upgrade will save time and money. Our Water Department will work throughout different sections of the Township making arrangements to access your property, (Ordinance 584-7, Letter E), to make the necessary changes. The meter change normally takes 20 minutes, and your cooperation during this transition is greatly appreciated. Read more here for explanation of the new Neptune Water Meter. If you have any questions concerning this project, please contact the Public Works Office at 609-239-5909.
All residents are asked to check their Sewer Curb Lids to be sure the lids are secured and in no way cracked or broken. This will help alleviate any debris from entering into your sewer line and causing possible damage. If you are experiencing trouble with your sewer line, please contact the Public Works Office at 239-5909. If the problem occurs in the evening or weekends call 609-386-2019.
