Portland Water District issues consumer warning, postcard marketing campaign


We have received multiple calls alerting us to a postcard being mailed to Cape Elizabeth residents urging them to get their water tested due to seasonal changes in the water table. Other communities may also receive the postcard.

There are no 'seasonal changes in the water table' that impact the quality of drinking water provided by the Portland Water District. Our water continues to be of the highest quality and meets or exceeds all water quality standards.

This mailing campaign is not from the Portland Water District (PWD), and there is no need to get your PWD water tested as a result of this postcard.

The postcard only states it is from a company called AERUS and has no contact information.
