SERVICE LINE DATA COLLECTION

We Need Your Help

The Dorset Water Co. is currently collecting data on customer service lines (water line from the street to your house).  We need this data so that we can potentially qualify for federal grants to replace our aging service lines.

 

If you are a water customer, we are relying on you to provide us with this data.  We've created an on-line form that will guide you through this process.  Click on the button below when you're ready to start the process.  Or if you'd prefer a paper form, you can download it here.

 

If you need any assistance collecting this data, please call the town offices at (802) 362-4571.
