Celebrating National Drinking Water Week

Each May, the Portland Water District invites the public to celebrate the vital role water plays in our lives during National Drinking Water Week that opened May 3 and ends Saturday, May 9.
Planned public events were cancelled because of the pandemic, so the water district has shifted gears and are offering an online photo contest and encouraging the pubic to visit local breweries for takeout, delivery, and curbside services.

Photo Contest: From Sebago Lake to My Face 

We invite our customers to share pictures of their favorite ways to drink PWD tap water through a photo contest on the Portland Water District Facebook page. Enter the contest any time during May 3 to 9 by commenting on our Contest Kickoff post with your photo submission. The five submissions with the highest number of “likes” by 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 9 will be selected as winners! For details and rules visit our web site:

Local Breweries: Show Your Support 

Dozens of local breweries rely on PWD water to produce their outstanding draughts. The breweries listed on our web site had committed to participate in our original 2020 Drinking Water Week plans. Raise a glass – it’s 90 percent water – and support these local businesses. Many offer delivery or curbside pick-up services for beer, other beverages, snacks, and necessities like toilet paper, as well as gift cards.
