The Belfast Water District will hold a public hearing on Monday, June 13, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. at the Water District office located at 285 Northport Avenue, Belfast, ME for the purpose of informing its customers of the proposed sale of water resource land, as required by 35-A M.R.S.A § 6109 and 1101 and Chapter 691of the Maine Public Utilities Commission Rules. 


The Belfast Water District wishes to inform the rate payers of Belfast Water District of their intent to sell a piece of property in the City of Belfast, described as Map#2 Lot #57 in the City of Belfast Tax Maps. The deed is recorded in Waldo County in Book # 432, Page # 98. This lot is 100 +/- acres in size, and was once part of the Little River Watershed Protection Area. Little River was once part of Belfast’s water supply but has not been used since 1980 and never will be used as a water source for Belfast.


The District intends to sell this lot and use the proceeds from this sale to help pay for the protection of the Goose River Aquifer and the two wells, Jackson Pit Well and Smart Road Well, it surrounds. These two wells have been Belfast’s sole water source since 1980. Therefore, the District feels the rate payers of Belfast would be better served by selling the Durham lot and using the proceeds to help protect its present and future water source.


Questions about the sale should be directed to Keith Pooler, Superintendent of the Belfast Water District at P.O. Box 506, Belfast Maine 04915, Tel. #207-338-1200, e-mail:
