Monthly Member Spotlight: Maine Water
All communities need consistent access to safe, quality water. We are fortunate locally to have Maine Water managing our water supply in such a proactive, open and committed manner. They are investing millions in new facilities to minimize risks. And they are working hard to make the required upgrade from the 136-year old current system that sits in the Saco River flood plain to a state-of-the-art facility that will meet our needs throughout the 21st century.
