Water Supply

 

Anthony Della Mura Sr
Water Commissioner

The Board of Water Supply owns and maintains approximately 105 miles of mains and 1,140 fire hydrants. Its primary responsibility is to provide an adequate supply of safe, potable water for domestic, industrial and fire-fighting purposes. All activities arise from and lead back to that simple mandate.
