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 7:30 PM or unless otherwise posted. Meetings are held at 100 Tower Way, Building # 11. The Commissioners appoint a superintendent annually who administers the water, sewer and drain departments.

Customers who use outside water extensively, such as for an irrigation system, may choose to install a Sewer Deduct Meter. Deduct meters measure the flow of water that does not enter the sewer system and are used to calculate a reduction in the sewer use fee.
All sewer deduct meters shall be installed and maintained entirely at the owner's expense.

SR and SRII Water Meters Installation Guidelines
The Marblehead Water & Sewer Commission has joined Greenscapes
, an organization to promote the protection of water resources through resident education. Greenscapes publishes periodic on-line Newsletters containing useful information and tips.
Winterize your water meters
In preparation for our New England weather and its fury the Water & Sewer Commission is asking all homeowners to "protect the water service into their residences". The water meter is located inside your home. We suggest insulating the meter itself from any possible drafts/cold air that may come in contact with it, thus causing the meter to freeze up. A fozen water meter is the responsibility of the homeowner and is a billable cost. Please help us in decreasing the amount of frozen water meters this year.
