Mars Borough Water Department

In 1903, it was suggested to borough council that the town needed a water system with 26 fire hydrants. There had been several fires in town and the buildings could have been saved if there had been a fire hydrant system.

Having fire hydrants would also reduce fire insurance rates.

On February 21, 1905, the citizens voted to build a municipal-owned water system and increase bounded indebtedness to cover the cost. Council also purchased a plot of ground for a reservoir.

Today our modern water system serves homes, businesses, and fire hydrants. Fees collected from over 600 customers help us to maintain and improve our system.
