Help Keep China Lake Clean

China Lake is a precious resource for the Central Maine community. Not only is a great recreational spot and a habitat for wildlife, it’s also the drinking water source for the Greater Waterville area. Please click the video or head over to the Water Quality section of our website to find out more about China Lake and what you can do to help keep it clean.

 

Our Source Water

The Kennebec Water District has used China Lake as its source of supply since 1905. China lake, covering an area of 6.1 square miles and a maximum depth of 85 feet, holds about 31.7 billion gallons of fresh water at any given time and provides more than enough capacity year around. The intake is in the West Basin of the lake which is largely undeveloped due to the Kennebec Water District’s management of these lands for over 100 years. Click below to find out more.
