The Waldoboro Utility District would like to remind all customers that sump pumps and downspouts should not be discharged into the wastewater system. The detrimental impacts of surface and storm water disposal into the wastewater system are numerous, and result in increasing costs for the District, such as:

  • Additional electricity demand which results in cost increases, where wet months can increase electricity pricing an average of 30% per month
  • The potential to compromise the necessary bacteria needed to breakdown wastewater in the Lagoons, as too much fresh water can kill the bacteria off
  • Additional wear and tear on the wastewater system, which could shorten the lifespan and longevity of critical equipment, requiring replacement sooner than expected and budgeted

WUD is investing in new technology which will be able to pinpoint excessive inflows into the wastewater system, allowing us to address and reduce these inflows in hopes of saving customers the additional cost and unnecessary wear and tear on the wastewater system.

The Maine State Plumbing Code prohibits surface and storm water disposal in wastewater systems, public and private, and requires surface and storm waters to be discharged separately into the soil. More information on how surface and storm waters can be appropriately discharged can be found on the maine.gov website. You can also reach out to the office at (207) 832-0422 or via email at info@wudme.org, and we’d be happy to assist in locating the information needed, or reach out to Mark Stults, Code Enforcement Office and Licensed Plumbing Inspector at the Town Office, by calling 207-832-5369 ex. 8 or emailing him at ceo@waldoboromaine.org.

We’re Here to Help

If you are facing financial difficulties with paying your wastewater bill and you qualify, there are programs which can help.

  • Waldoboro residents can apply for assistance by contacting the CLC YMCA Community Navigator Karen-Ann Hagar-Smith for the Waldoboro at the Town Office (207) 832-5369 x 308 or (207) 403-4116 to see if you qualify for additional assistance. More information can be found www.waldoboromaine.org.

Additionally, customers can make payments in any amount on their account, whether weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or even annually. Your account will be credited when your payment is received in good order, and any amount owed will be deducted from the credit amount during the billing cycle. There is no minimum payment amount. You will continue to receive billing statements so that you can monitor your balance.

 Please reach out to our office if you need assistance at (207) 832-0422.
