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.

Excerpts included in this passage are from a history of Mars written by Mayor Lester Kennedy in 1973.


Payments dropped off in person now need to be brought to the new Borough Administration Office at 301 Arch Street (first floor), Mars, PA.
