Water Department

What We Do:

The Marblehead Water Department delivers the water to individual customers and businesses.  Currently there are approximately 8,000 water meters in Marblehead.  Two pump stations, one on Tedesco Street and one on Loring Avenue in neighboring Salem, maintain water pressure during high use periods.  The system also includes two water storage tanks located on Burke's Hill (off Tioga Way) and and on Village Street (near Tower Way).

All water is supplied by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA).  It originates primarily from the Quabbin Reservoir and the Wachusett Reservoir.  The water is treated at the Walnut Hill treatment facility before moving on to the MWRA communities.
