The Water Department will conduct its annual water main flushing program commencing on SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015, at 11:00 PM.
The flushing will last three to four nights from 11:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. each day. Sections of town will be done in the following order: Tedesco, Humphrey and Lafayette streets area; Atlantic Avenue and West Shore Drive area; Naugus Head, Beacon Street, the Historic District and the Business District; and, lastly, the Neck. (Please note that this schedule is subject to change,)
It is possible that some areas may experience discolored water early in the morning. If you should encounter this, please run the cold water in your sink until the water runs clear. This may take several minutes. Please refrain from using the hot water or doing laundry until the discoloration is gone.
Please call the Marblehead Water Department at 781 631-0102 if the problem persists.
The Board of Water and Sewer Commissioners consists of five members who are elected to three-year staggered terms. The Commission meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM unless otherwise posted. Meetings are held at 100 Tower Way, Building # 11.
Water and sewer rates are set annually based on a Rate Study that determines the revenue required to fund expenses for the next fiscal year. The drain budget is funded through tax receipts that are appropriated at the Annual Town Meeting.
How to Calculate Mid-Cycle Water and Sewer Cost
Customers can determine their water and sewer usage at any time between billing cycles by following the instructions and examples given.
