Title

Burlington scales back wastewater testing

Description

"After two and a half years of data collection, the city of Burlington said Tuesday that it would end its wastewater testing program next week to rely solely on the CDC’s wastewater contractor to track Covid-19 levels at wastewater treatment plants."

"The Burlington wastewater program has tested SARS-CoV-2 viral levels for at least three treatment plants each week since August 2020. The city’s wastewater data has more or less tracked with other metrics of Covid-19 in Vermont, peaking during the Omicron surge in January 2022 and the BA.2 surge in spring of the same year."
