WATER: The City of Burlington not only supplies water to residents and business within the city limits, but also to Industrial Parks #1, #2, #3, and #4 just south of the city on U.S. Highway 75. The city also supplies water to Rural Water District No. 2, Rural Water District No. 3, the City of Gridley, the City of LeRoy, and the City of New Strawn.
WASTEWATER/SEWER: The sewage collection system for the City of Burlington has developed along with the expanding population to serve the residential and business activities. The system consists largely of 8″ gravity lines, however, there are a few 10″ and 12″ mains in the critical areas. The main lift station, located near Second Street and St. Lawrence Street, pumps directly to the sewage treatment plant. There are seven smaller lift stations located throughout the City, one of which also pumps directly to the sewage treatment plant.
Sewer Lagoons – The City of Burlington has recently built new sewer lagoons on approximately 59.74 acres south of Burlington and east of Highway 75.
