Bangor Water District

Open House

Our most successful endeavor is our Open House held every year in conjunction with National Drinking Water Week. We invite area schools to tour our facilities. In 2012, BWD hosted its twenty-second annual Open House, attended by over 220 students. Tours were held of our treatment facility and pumping station at Floods Pond. Tents were set up with BWD employees educating attendees on various topics including watershed protection, water quality testing, the water cycle and leak testing. American Forest Management had a display on forest management in the Floods Pond watershed and the University of Maine showed the insects and fish found in Floods Pond. This was an ideal setting to show the water supply in its pristine state and to educate students on what the District does to ensure safe drinking water, and to keep it pollution free.
