150 years ago on Thanksgiving water flowed to a house in Portland for the first time - from WCSH 6

In this fascinating piece from WCSH 6 - we learn about the establishment of the Portland Water District and its unique connection to CMDN!

"On Thanksgiving Day in 1869 a 3/4 galvanized service was attached to the water main and brought water from Sebago Lake to a house at 94 Danforth Street in Portland. That property today is the Catherine Morrill Day Nursery."
