The Champlain Water District (CWD), which provides wholesale water to Essex, is conducting an income survey. The demographics of each water system varies significantly. Many water systems only serve a portion of a municipality, and CWD believes that census data may not be representative of the population of water customers served by CWD and the water systems. CWD's goal is to bring this data forward to the Vermont Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) program to incentivize reduced loan rates and principal forgiveness for future water system investments.
A sample of water customers will receive a postcard in the mail notifying them of the survey. CWD asks that recipients complete the survey within two weeks of receiving the postcard.
For more information or any questions about the survey, please call CWD directly at 802-864-7454.
