New Terms and Conditions for 2024

The Kennebec Water District (KWD) Board of Trustees and the Maine Public Utilities Commission have approved revisions to KWD’s Terms and Conditions of service. The revised Terms and Conditions went into effect on May 1, 2024. Changes include updated fees and modifications to metering and backflow procedures. These revisions do not impact water rates. Please see them by clicking here.

Our Source Water

The Kennebec Water District has used China Lake as its source of supply since 1905. China lake, covering an area of 6.1 square miles and a maximum depth of 85 feet, holds about 31.7 billion gallons of fresh water at any given time and provides more than enough capacity year around. The intake is in the West Basin of the lake which is largely undeveloped due to the Kennebec Water District’s management of these lands for over 100 years. Click below to find out more.

#beach season is here, and if you're aiming to feel your best in that swimsuit, here's a simple trick: drink more water! It's not just about staying hydrated; increasing your water intake can actually aid in shedding those extra pounds. Here's how:

Curbing Hunger: Ever felt those midday hunger pangs that lead to snacking on calorie-laden treats? Drinking water before meals can help you feel fuller, reducing the urge to overeat.

Boosting Metabolism: Drinking water can temporarily speed up your metabolism. A study published in 2003 found that drinking 500 ml of water increased metabolic rates in healthy adults by 30% for about 30-40 minutes.

Calorie-Free Hydration: Unlike sugary drinks, water has zero calories. So, swapping out those sodas or juices for water can significantly cut down your daily calorie intake.

Supporting Workouts: Hydration is crucial for effective workouts. Drinking water before, during, and after exercise helps maintain your energy levels and performance, enabling you to burn more calories during your sessions.

Detoxifying Effect: Water helps flush out toxins from your body, aiding in proper digestion and preventing water retention, which can make you feel bloated and sluggish.

Remember, the recommended daily intake of water varies depending on factors like age, weight, and activity level, but aiming for around 8 glasses of KWD tap water a day i#hydrate #beachreadywithtapwaterachReadyWithTapWater

After a challenging couple of weeks, we're happy to announce that the water main has been re-routed around the traffic light poles on Kennedy Memorial Drive, and those impacted by low water pressure have had their water pressure restored to normal levels. We're very appreciative of our partners (City of Waterville, MainellMaineDOT, MaineDOT and Nitram Excavation) for helping us get this work done so quickly, as well as our customers for your patience and understanding through it all.

(Image: The attached image shows a pumper truck filling the old water main so there are no voids underground that could lead to future settling.)
