WRRD Department Overview

Water Resource Recovery Department 
The City of Saco Water Resource Recovery Department (WRRD) provides our customers with high quality wastewater services through responsible, sustainable, and creative stewardship of the resources and assets we manage. We do this with a productive and talented workforce, while always striving for excellence. We accomplish this by protecting the health and well-being of all who live, work, and play within the city by conveying all liquid waste from their homes and businesses to the treatment facility for processing. Along with that is the protection of one of the city’s largest resources, the Saco River. It provides a tremendous recreational value to all citizens and a revenue to numerous entities.

What is an Enterprise Fund? 
The WRRD utilizes an enterprise fund to promote and maintain long-term financial sustainability of its Water Resource activities. The fund is a separate accounting and financial reporting mechanism for which revenues and expenditures are segregated with financial statements separate from all other governmental activities. The fund identifies the total direct and indirect costs to provide the service and the sources and amounts of revenues that support the service for which a fee is charged in exchange for service.
