George Peters

It is with profound sadness that I must pass on the news of George Peters passing on April 22, 2023. George is a former President of MWUA.  George touched the lives of many within our profession in a significant way. He served as the superintendent for several water systems under the former General Water Works. My memory may fail me but some of the utilities he managed included:

  • Fort Kent
  • Caribou
  • Searsport
  • Eastport
  • Rockland
  • East Millinocket (?)

Most of these positions he held were with General Water Company and later Maine Water Company after Maine Water Company purchased General Water Company. I was honored to know George. I personally will miss him for many reasons, his wisdom, his sense of humor, his stories, and his friendship. We have lost a rich resource that dedicated his life to our profession. He spent his entire career trying to make it better.
