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
- 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.
Graveside service for family and friends will be on Saturday, April 29,2023, at 1:00PM.
