Household Characteristics Survey

 

 

 

The Village of Champlain will be conducting a Household Characteristics Survey of some of our municipal water system users beginning the week of May 27th, 2019. We plan to replace some water main lines and must conduct this survey to document that we are eligible for financial aid. Only water users on the streets affected are being asked to participate. Those who receive a survey are requested to fill it out right away and return it ASAP in the self-addressed stamped envelope. RCAP Solutions, a not-for-profit organization, is helping with the survey at no cost to the Village. We need a very high rate of return and if RCAP does not receive enough surveys in the mail, we will be going door-to-door to make sure we get the required minimum number of surveys. Please get your survey in early. Your participation is critical to show that we are eligible for grants that will help keep our water rates lower. This survey is confidential. For questions, please contact the Village of Champlain at 518-298-4152.
