Water Main Break at Acadia

Date: 06/11/2019

As of 4 pm, the Bangor Water District completed repairs to the fire hydrant valve and charged the main line restoring water pressure to all of Northern Light Acadia Hospital.  As a result normal operations have resumed. We thank everyone for the patience and understanding during this event.

Northern Light Acadia Hospital reacts quickly to water main break and minimizes effects to patients and staff

At approximately 10 am, the Bangor Water District notified Northern Light Acadia Hospital of a water main break on Stillwater Avenue between Fern Street and Buffalo Wild Wings. The water district is making repairs, but due to the break, they have notified Acadia Hospital that it could be without water for two to six hours while repairs are made.  

The comfort and safety of our patients is our top priority. Acadia is proactively working to ensure any effects to patient care are minimized. Porta-potties have been ordered and are being set up at locations in the front and back of the facility for use by patients and staff. Bottled drinking water was ordered and distributed throughout the facility. Nutrition services had lunch prepared prior to the break and lunch will be served as planned. Preparations are currently underway for dinner.  

Patients and families who have any questions regarding appointments can call 973-6100.
