SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Customers served by the Champlain Water District have been asked to limit their outdoor water usage while various upgrades are made to the Vermont plant.

General manager Jim Fay tells WPTZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1O3ZRYT ) that crews are working to replace the South Burlington plant’s discharge header, which he says serves approximately 90 percent of the water district does each day.

The district was shut down Tuesday as workers replaced the plant’s more than 40-year-old pipes with new stainless steel pipes.

The replacement process is expected to take about 48 hours. Customers in Chittenden County have been asked to curtail their outdoor water use until Thursday morning.

Fay says the whole project will cost $500,000, but the work will save money down the line.
