Winooski provides safe, clean household water to residents of the City. As part of the Champlain Water District, in 2015 we were honored for Excellence in Water Treatment and also in 2014 for having good tasting municipal tap water. We’re able to maintain this level of quality because our water comes from a clean, deep water source in Shelburne Bay and because we consistently test the water to ensure it remains clean and healthy for use by the community.

Winooski works with many other municipalities in Chittenden County to inform residents about how individuals can impact stormwater so that the stormwater that flows over your property remains as clean as possible and is not flowing so fast that it will erode stream banks.
