The Maine Rural Water Association recently honored the Winterport
Water District as the 2010 winner of it's Most Outstanding Operations
Award for water system operations. The award ceremony took place
during the luncheon on December 7th at the MRWA’s 30th Annual Water &
Wastewater Technical Conference, Exhibition & Meeting held at the
Hilton Garden Inn in Freeport. The Winterport Water District is a dual
utility and operates water and wastewater systems along the Penobscot
River in central Maine.
The water district has greatly improved the reliability and quality of
its water system over the last several years. New wells, a modern
pumping station, improved system controls and the replacement of much
of the original 1895 distribution system piping has improved system
efficiencies for the Districts customers. The District received
several grants as well as low interest loans for its projects to help
defray the cost to its customers.
The Maine Rural Water Association (MRWA) is a private, non-profit
organization helping rural water and wastewater systems provide safe
drinking water and protect the environment at an affordable cost to
users. The Association is run by and for rural water and wastewater
systems. Visit the MRWA on the web at
