Bucksport Water System is a member-owned, not for profit water system providing needs based service in the Bucksport and surrounding communities. Since 1968, we have been pumping and treating water to provide our customers with the safest drinking water possible. Our system currently utilizes four ground wells and elevated tanks to provide water for our customers. We will be starting our Phase X project next year and once complete we will be bringing online our fifth and largest well and storage facility to date. We are currently pumping water from the Black Creek Aquifer and our wells range in depth from 600 to 850 feet. To date we have approximately 5,200 taps on our system serving more than 13,000 customers with over 350 miles of pipeline. We are constantly improving and expanding our system to support the projected economic growth in our service area.
Our improvements and expansions are managed by our General Manager, who handles the day-to-day operations of the Company. Under the leadership of the General Manager and a ten-member Board of Directors, who are elected annually on staggered terms by the members of the general system.We actively search for new water resources with the goal of increasing our daily water storage capacity to 1.2 million gallons a day by the year 2014. This increase will allow us to accommodate the tremendous growth potential in our service area.
