The Bar Harbor Water Division will initiate its annual waterline flushing program beginning Monday, September 19, 2022 and finishing on or before Friday, October 21, 2022. To minimize the impact of low water pressure, flushing is expected to take place between 12am - 8am.

The purpose of the waterline flushing is to increase flow capacities of the water system and provide higher water quality to our customers. 

Customers may experience decreased pressure or discolored water with occasional sediment during this time. 

Throughout the flushing process, water is safe to consume. However, fixtures and laundry may be impacted. If you experience reddish water, run water until clear before showering or doing laundry.  

We regret any inconvenience this may cause. For further information contact the Water Division Office at 288-3555 M-F 7:30AM-4:00PM.
