The Cumberland Water Department operates as an enterprise fund within the Town servicing roughly 23,000 people north of Marshall Avenue. Potable water and fire protection are supplied to our customers through the operation of a surface water treatment plant, six groundwater wells, two wholesale connections, five pumping stations, five water storage tanks, and 140 miles of distribution mains. Water rates are set to support the operations of the Department, including the maintenance and replacement of infrastructure within the distribution system.

The Cumberland Water Department’s regularly scheduled hydrant flushing has been delayed until the Fall. This decision was made based on COVID-19 ramifications including staffing and the availability of the necessary chemicals. When the flushing schedule is finalized for the Fall it will be published on the Town website and the newspaper.
