CHASE’S POND WATERSHED
 
A Watershed is the area of land where all of the water that is under it or drains off of it goes into the same place. In the case of the York Water District it all flows to Chase’s Pond. Chase’s Pond, a long, narrow and shallow pond, serves as the sole source of supply for the Town of York drinking water and has since 1896. Located just west of I-95, Chase’s Pond forms the headwaters of the Cape Neddick River. Much of the water in Chase’s Pond arrives from the south facing slope of Mount Agamenticus most of which the District owns. The entire watershed area consists of about 2090 acres of which the District owns 1978 acres or 95% of the watershed. The Chase’s Pond Watershed Area is bordered by Scituate and Chase’s Pond Roads to the south and east, Mountain Road to the north and Kittery Water Districts Folly and Middle pond watershed areas to the west.
