The Portland Water District moved its general offices in 1915 to 16 Casco Street, a building formerly occupied by Northeastern Telephone Company. The district needed more office space.

The building was modified specifically for the Portland Water District. The modifications included a remodel of the front of the building to allow for better natural light and the creation of a trustee meeting space inside the building.

The Portland Water District remained at 16 Casco Street until 1967 when its Douglass Street facility was expanded.
