Maine is experiencing a drought. Is PWD affected?
Sebago Lake level is about a foot below normal for this time of year; however, there is no impact to the public water supply. Sebago Lake is the second largest lake in Maine and holds nearly a trillion gallons of water. The public water intake pipes are deep below the surface. The Steep Falls well system supplies approximately 120 customers from a well system which would be more sensitive to a prolonged drought. It is being monitored and to date there has been no impact on our ability to meet the needs of our Steep Falls customers. 10/25/2016
