Welcome to the Winterport Water District|
WINTERPORT WATER DISTRICT
CHARTER UPDATE TO INCREASE BORROWING LIMITATION
NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING – MARCH 27, 2018
LOCATION – TOWN OFFICE/TIME – 6:00 PM
The Winterport Water District (District) is in the process of increasing its
borrowing capacity from $1,200,000 to $3,500,000. The current borrowing limit
was established back in April 2006 and is not sufficient for the current level
of borrowing planned. The District is in the process of completing design for a
new water storage tank, which has received $488,000 in grant funding from the
Drinking Water Program. The total project cost will be approximately $1,220,000,
with the District’s estimated portion being $732,000. The additional borrowing
capacity will also be necessary for future match funds for possible grants
needed for the upgrade of the District’s wastewater treatment facility, which
must be upgraded from a primary level of treatment to a secondary level of
treatment. Further details will be provided during the public meeting, where we
will also be happy to answer any other questions you may have.
The Winterport Water District is committed to the quality of life and the
natural resources that
make Winterport a special place to live and recreate. The health of the
environment in Winterport is crucial to protecting our water resources. The
condition of the natural environment surrounding the Punch Bowl Hill Aquifer
affects the amount of treatment that is necessary to provide high quality water
to Winterport residents. The Winterport Water District acknowledges the
importance that a strong environmental stewardship with the residents of
Winterport be maintained to protect our valuable water resources.
Winterport Water District takes seriously its undertaking to provide our
customers with quality service for as lowest costs possible. The District
encourages the use of this web site by its customers and other water
professionals to learn about not only the services it provides, but how to
protect our valuable water resources worldwide.
