Kennebunk Sewer District Constructing New Administrative Office and Maintenance Garage!

Rendering and Description of KSD’s New Administration Office and Maintenance Building

The Kennebunk Sewer District will be constructing a new 12,000 square foot facility featuring administrative offices and a maintenance garage.  The new structure will be built on the site currently occupied by the Keuffel & Esser (K&E) building, which is adjacent to the wastewater treatment facility located on Water Street.

Relocating the administrative offices and maintenance garage to the K&E site will provide physical space needed for upgrades to the biological wastewater treatment process that are scheduled to occur in the coming years.  The move will also replace the aging existing facilities, which were constructed in the early to mid 1980s.

The new structure, designed by Graham Architects, will be built by Benchmark Construction beginning this spring following site environmental remediation and demolition of the existing K&E facility.  District staff anticipates moving into the new modernized facility sometime in early 2018.

New KSD GIS Application

Staff has been working with the Kennebunk, Kennebunkport & Wells Water District and the Town of Kennebunk over the years in developing Kennebunk’s Global Information System (GIS).  We are at a point where we are ready to make this available for public use.  KSD worked with Corson GIS Solution to get our sewer system mapping on the web for customer access.  We now have an icon on the Home Page that will bring you to the new GIS site.

 

The GIS system is used as a tool for planning purposes and developing our asset management program.  It is also valuable for customers, contractors, and other government and utility companies for their planned projects.  Our sewer system mapping layers can be overlaid on the Town’s and Kennebunk, Kennebunkport & Wells Water District’s mapping for an accurate depiction and understanding of infrastructure serving Kennebunk,
