Disconnect services for non-payment

Re-establishment of Disconnection Process

We know that the last six months have been difficult for many of you. However we’re now returning to a “new normal,” and that means – beginning November 1, 2020 – the Maine Public Utilities Commission will again allow utilities to disconnect services for non-payment.

In addition to your regular water bill, Newport Water District has continued to send Reminder Notices to all past due accounts so all customers are aware of their outstanding balances.

Possible sources for financial assistance to pay your water bill may be found through

· Your town or city general assistance program

· Dialing 2-1-1 or www.211maine.org

If you cannot pay the full past due amount, please contact us for a payment agreement.

When you make a payment agreement, you must make the payments as

scheduled and you must pay any new water bills by the due date. If you keep the

payment arrangement, we will waive finance charges on bills issued during the

disconnection moratorium. If you do not keep the payment agreement, the charges will not be waived.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter as we move forward.

Here I am rinsing the MIEX contactor. Some of the resin floats up into the settling tubes (seen here) and settles on the tubes, thus restricting flow. I drain the contactor rinse and inspect, then fill and back on line

One of our maintenance jobs is cleaning the sand filters. The top collects organics and other contaminants to create the Schmutzdecke (German, “dirt cover” or dirty skin, sometimes wrongly spelled schmutzedecke) is a hypogeal biological layer formed on the surface of a slow sand filter. When the filter blinds off, operators drain the filter then about a 1/2 inch is shoveled off and then raked into rows for more filter surface area.
