Scarborough Sanitary District

Located in Southeastern Maine on the Atlantic Ocean, the Town of Scarborough was settled by seafarers. A small community of less than 2,500 until after World War II, the population has now increased to almost 17,000 - an increase of more than 650%. The growth can be attributed to Scarborough's proximity to the city of Portland, a comfortable seven-mile commute, and the Town's rural character and extensive natural resources. Read more...

Scarborough Sanitary District News

COVID-19 Updates:

Currently, all staff are healthy. The District is fully staffed and working normal business hours. All facilities are fully operational and we do not foresee any issues with meeting permit and maintaining operations. Some facilities and departments have split staff into shifts to provide greater social distancing, but Sanitary District staff do not work in close proximity of each other and frankly most of our work requires 2 for safety reasons.

We are keeping abreast of the rapidly changing situation by monitoring the news, watching safety videos and attending Webinars. To date we have participated in, or plan on participating in, the following training events:

• Video: Protecting Yourself Against COVID-19 and Other Contagious Illnesses
• Webinar: Updates on Coronavirus: Legal and Practical Tips for Businesses and Employers, Bernstein Shur
• Webinar: Pandemic Continuity of Operations (COOP) Essential Personnel
• Webinar: Clean Water Act Regulatory Issues in a Pandemic

The CDC produced a fact sheet addressing water and wastewater concerns titled: “Water Transmission and CORVID-19”. It is important to note that in summary, there is minimal chance of spreading CORVID-19 via wastewater.
