The newly upgraded Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Wells Water District website at www.kkw.org includes a stream gauge of Branch Brook, allowing real-time viewing of the flow rate. Branch Brook has been in the news in the past year because of Poland Spring’s interest in bottling water from the aquifer. Water district trustees are no longer considering the proposed sale of water to the company.
Other sections of the Web site have also been expanded and upgraded.
