Flushing of Distribution System

Bangor Water District will begin flushing our distribution system on April 29th. This important process will continue until completed, likely extending until mid-September. The flushing operation may cause some temporary disturbances in the water system such as discoloration, low pressure, or the appearance of air in the water.

Please run a cold water tap or hose bib for up to 30 minutes if you notice water quality issues in your home or business.  If problems persist, please notify Bangor Water District at 947-4516 Monday-Friday 7:00AM to 3:30PM or 843-6472 after hours.

Expected Weekly Schedule:  Week of July 15th

Monday – Brewster St and Nash St area.

The Bangor Water District General Manager and Trustees ask for your patience. System flushing is a required maintenance item.

Billing Issue

Bangor Water recently obtained an Order from the Maine Public Utilities Commission relating to certain billing errors that occurred during 2023, following the District’s last approved rate increase.  The District had utilized billing rates based on a rate schedule approved by the Commission on January 1, 2023, even though portions of customers’ usage during this billing period had included fourth quarter 2022 and should have been prorated. Bangor Water will be issuing refunds to current customers in the form of bill credits and sending out refund checks to former customers to their last known address. The District has taken steps to ensure that similar billing errors do not occur in the future. We apologize for these errors and remain committed to providing quality service to our customers at just and reasonable rates.
