About Ward Water

Maine water | A family run treatment company

For more than a century Ward has specialized in the delivery and treatment of Maine water.

In 1896 Marcellus & Lizzie Ward started a family run Maine water treatment business.  The Wards began installing delivery systems for clean, reliable, healthy drinking water.

Using the most advanced equipment for its time Ward specialized in the design and installation of “Wind Mill” based water systems, to deliver water to Maine homes and businesses.

Looking back, it’s hard to imagine that the Wards could have ever envisioned after 120 years their family business would still be going strong.

Advances in Maine water treatment

Today, times have changed and so has the science of water technology.

Ward Water no longer uses Wind Mills to provide homes and businesses with dependable drinking water. Deep well submersible pumps have replaced the wind mills.

Nano filtration systems and adsorptive media resins now purify the water our customers depend on.

And microbiological testing methods allow us to analyze contents in Maine water for the presence of harmful chemicals and contaminants.
