The Limerick Water and Sewer Districts are quasi-municipal utilities created in 1958 and 1955 respectfully, by acts of the Maine State Legislature. Today the service area includes portions of the upper village and the lower village.
The Limerick Water District is overseen by a 3-member Board of Trustees that must be residents of Limerick and be elected. The terms are three years and staggered so that one board member is elected each year.
