Portland Water District begins spring program to clean water mains


The Portland Water District began spring water main maintenance last week, first in Falmouth, then moving to other parts of the system.

Maintenance flushing activities occur during business hours, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

Customers may notice short periods of water discoloration; however, this program is essential to maintain water quality and public health.  If customers experience any change in water quality following maintenance activities or have security concerns regarding Portland Water District employees, please call 761-8310.  Portland Water District personnel carry photo ID and wear uniforms.
