Public Water Resources Information System

Welcome to the Maine Drinking Water Program's Public Water Resources Information System. The Drinking Water Program (DWP) is responsible for enforcing the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act in Maine and has primary responsibility for administering the State's rules relating to drinking water. The DWP regulates over 1,900 public water systems in Maine.

About the Data

This site is intended to assist planners, developers, and regulators who have a need to know the location of areas that are used as public water supplies. The site requires registration.

Data provided are:

- Location of wells and intakes for public water supplies in Maine

- Contact information for the owners of the supplies

- Protection areas for each supply. New town and state permit requests in these areas require notice to the public water supplier.

The site allows preparation of maps on either a town or a site scale for local printing, as well as data download for individual towns. No water quality or water system operational data are available on the site.
