Mission:

The Meredith Water Dept. is committed to providing the community with the safest drinking water possible, and enough supply to meet its demand for both consumption and fire protection. The Water Department adheres to regulations set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES). Lake Waukewan is the Town’s source for drinking water and for more information on your drinking water please refer to the annually published CCR (consumer confidence report) which is available on-line and in hard copy in Town offices.

The Water Department staff continues proactively to maintain the water treatment plant, two water booster stations, 18 miles of aging water mains, well over 100 hydrants and the town’s 1.5 million gallon water tower.

The Meredith Sewer Department maintains the collection system which consists of over 20 miles of sewer mains, 5 lift stations and sewer main cleaning activities to keep everything flowing properly.

All waste water is sent through an inter-municipal transmission line to the Winnipesaukee River Basin Treatment Facility in Franklin, New Hampshire. This facility is owned and operated by the State of New Hampshire. Its associated expenses accounts for more than 50% of the Towns sewer budget.

The Water and Sewer Department have a combined staff of five employees faithfully devoted to safely providing quality customer service to our 1,200 water customers and 1,400 sewer customers. Every staff member is licensed to operate both our water and sewer systems. We work 7 days a week and are on-call 24/7 for emergencies.
