The Sanford Water District serves the City of Sanford (including the Village of Springvale) Maine.  The District is a Quasi-Municipal entity with a three member board of trustees.

The Sanford Water District has historically pumped an average of 2.6 million gallons per day, with a peak production of approximately 3.5 million gallons per day in the Summer.  Consumption has dropped in recent years, however, and the average pumpage of the District is now a little under 2 million gallons per day.  The District has approximately 6,000 service connections.

Nine well sources located in different areas within the town of Sanford supply the system with groundwater.


Our mission is to provide safe, abundant, and affordable water to the residents of Sanford and Springvale.
