History of Bangor's Water System - One-Day Zoom Event January 19, 2021 4:00 - 5:00 pm Register View Cart

Bangor Water District
In this presentation we will learn about the history of Bangor’s water system from
the 1800’s to the present, including some of the challenges of providing safe
drinking water both in the past and the present.
Prior to 1875 there was no 
public water system in Bangor, and we will learn how water was accessed.
Moriarty will describe the history of the Bangor Water District, which began by using the Penobscot River as Bangor’s water supply. Today, the water
comes from Flood’s Pond in Otis. With 100+ year-old pipes that are beginning to fail, water distribution continues to be a concern in Bangor.
