State officials last fall warned Customers of the Waldoboro Water Company to boi
State officials last fall warned Customers of the Waldoboro Water Company to boil their water, citing falling pressure and increased bacteria counts. Paul Ring, owner of WWC, refused to take action after being ordered to disinfect the water supply. A Kennebec County judge approved the state's petition to place the company in receivership, and operations were turned over to an outside contractor. Waldoboro is attermpting to purchase the WWC from Ring, but Ring said he doesn't want to deal with town officials. Ring, who formerly owned the New Harbor and Hartland water companies, last year sold the Hartland system to Consumers Maine Water Company.
